TikTok Introduces Text-Based Posts Similar To Twitter And Meta’s Threads

Popular Chinese short-form video hosting platform, TikTok, has introduced text-only posts, becoming the latest social media platform to adopt the format, seemingly as an alternative for people seeking to leave Twitter.

The platform announced that it will now allow users to create and share text-based content as a way to broaden options for its creators to share their ideas and express their creativity.

“With text posts, we’re expanding the boundaries of content creation for everyone on TikTok, giving the written creativity we’ve seen in comments, captions, and videos a dedicated space to shine,” the platform said.

The new feature is already being touted to be a contender to apps like Twitter and Meta’s Threads.
