TikTok is rolling out a new text-only feature in an attempt to rival Elon Musk’s Twitter.
- The text-only feature is currently being rolled out to a limited number of users, but it is expected to be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
- The feature is similar to Instagram Stories, which allows users to share short, ephemeral posts.
- TikTok is not the only social media platform that is experimenting with text-only features. Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook, recently launched a text-only app called Threads.
The feature, called “Text Posts,” allows users to create posts that are limited to 1,000 characters. Users can choose from a variety of backgrounds for their posts, and they can also add hashtags and tag other users.
The move comes as Twitter is under new ownership by Elon Musk, who has said that he wants to make the platform more open and free-wheeling. TikTok‘s text-only feature could appeal to users who are looking for a more focused and less distracting way to communicate.
It is unclear how successful TikTok’s text-only feature will be. However, the move is a sign that the company is willing to experiment with new ways to engage users. TikTok is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, and it will be interesting to see how the text-only feature is received by users.
