A Free Post Editing Feature on Threads
Social media enthusiasts have something new to look forward to.
Meta’s Threads, often regarded as Twitter’s contender, is reportedly setting the stage to introduce a post-editing feature for its users.
This feature will permit users to modify their posts within 5 minutes after the content goes live.
Interestingly, this will position Threads on a similar pedestal with its rival, X (formerly known as Twitter).
However, while X reserves a generous 1-hour post-editing window for its premium subscribers, Threads aims to be a game-changer by offering this utility free of cost to all its users.
X vs. Threads: The Premium Battle
X’s premium package provides an extended editing window to draw a comparative analysis.
It includes coveted perks like the blue checkmark, broader reach, and a chance to share revenue.
Speculations Afloat: The Developer’s Insight
The feature is not live yet, but the rumor mill is in full swing.
Screenshots shared by a renowned developer, Alessandro Paluzzi, fuel the speculation of this anticipated launch.
Paluzzi suggests this editing liberty might soon be a reality for Threads users.
However, until we hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, it is prudent to take this information with a pinch of salt.
Echoing this sentiment of new introductions, Adam Mosseri, who helms Instagram (a Meta subsidiary), has indicated the platform’s inclination to bolster Threads with innovative features, post-editing being one of them.
However, the actual date of the feature rollout remains under wraps.
Deleting Threads, Keeping Instagram: A Welcome Move
Diving deeper into Meta’s development cauldron, another feature is gaining traction.
The company allegedly works on a tool to empower Threads users to erase their profiles while keeping their Instagram accounts intact.
This is a direct response to critiques directed at Meta for merging the deletion options of both platforms.
Paluzzi shares further insights on this.
If one opts to obliterate their Threads profile, it will be 120 days before they can re-enter the Threads realm using their existing Instagram credentials.
Such a move is poised to allay user concerns and could further stimulate the creation of anonymous Threads accounts, mirroring a trend observed on platforms like Twitter.
While these features seem promising and testify to Meta’s commitment to enhancing user experience, one must await the official word.
Until then, watch this space for more updates on Meta’s exciting ventures.
