Meta's Threads Receives Upgraded Web Functions, Including Post Quotation


Instagram's Chief, Adam Mosseri, revealed on Thursday that the text-based social media platform "Threads" has introduced a new feature for quoting posts on the web.

Threads was initially launched in July with the goal of competing with "X," which is now the official name for Twitter, following its acquisition by billionaire Elon Musk for $44 billion in late October.

Despite its modest debut and the absence of many features found on X, Threads achieved remarkable success, amassing over 100 million sign-ups in its first week.

Since Threads' debut, Meta, its parent company, has been consistently adding new features. In August, they rolled out a long-awaited web version.

However, the web version of Threads was lacking a crucial feature: the ability to quote posts. Previously, users could only repost without adding comments. Now, users can click on the double-arrow icon and choose the "quote" option to quote a post.

Mosseri also noted that Threads users on mobile devices can now easily follow a series of posts and receive notifications when new posts are added to the series.

Threads, often referred to as an "Instagram app," has received multiple updates recently, including a feature to block sensitive topics and a post search function.

Threads can be downloaded for Android devices from the Google Play Store and for iOS devices from Apple's App Store. It is also accessible through the web.
