Threads to launch web version this week
Meta’s Twitter rival, Threads, will be releasing a new web version of its platform this week, allowing users to post, interact with other posts, and look at their feed.
Threads has been widely described as “Twitter killer,” launching in July in the midst of a growing user revolt against the changes made to the platform since its acquisition, including loosened content moderation, controversial changes to its verification system, a focus on paywalling features such as TweetDeck, and the recent introduction of rate limits, which capped how many tweets a users could read.
So far, Threads has only been available through its official apps on the App Store and Google Play. However, according to a spokesperson, the platform will be bringing some of its core features to the web ‘over the next few days,’ although no further details were shared.
What is Threads?
Threads is Meta’s attempt at recreating Twitter. The platform features verification badges, public profiles, bios, follower counts, pages for creators, public figures, and businesses, and more. “Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow,” reads the app’s App Store listing.
