Reposts Tab in Threads and User Profile

The most recent update to Meta might be like a Twitter 2.0 update. The company mimicked the capabilities rather than the precise features. According to the reports, the new "Reposts" tab is available for viewing on the Threads profile page, allowing users to quickly browse all of a person's reposts. The launch of the reverse-chronological "Following" feed is another aspect of the update. The reposts are set up in the previously stated order here. The "For You" feed was already available on Meta before Threads' "Following" feature was introduced. Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram, claimed that this was "based on your feedback."

Meta Remains Cool Despite Threads Getting Twitter-Like Features

A spokesperson for Meta reportedly claimed that the most recent upgrade has already gone into effect. Staff members tested it, but it appears that iOS is still not supported. Elon Musk, the CEO of X, has accused Mark Zuckerberg of stealing their trade secrets, but Meta is unmoved by the claim. The Reposts tab, a tool similar to Twitter, makes that clear. Speaking of this conflict, Zuckerberg received a letter from Musk's personal lawyer Alex Spiro complaining about the social media company's illegal acquisition of intellectual property (IP). According to the letter, Threads is an exact replica of Twitter from every viewpoint. Additionally, he made strong accusations that the Meta chief had hired individuals who had previously worked for Twitter. The letter further asserts that the concerned employees "illegally" kept the electronic equipment and paperwork they received from Twitter. Spiro doesn't seem to have any proof for these allegations, though.

What recently happened with Tweetdeck?

Musk made the decision to switch the TweetDeck service to the new XPro as part of Twitter's rebranding as "X." As per reports, several users discovered it was no longer available, even to free members. You must first be a Blue subscriber in order to access XPro or X Premium. This indicates that you can use ad revenue sharing and other premium services provided you give Musk part of your money. According to renowned industry analyst Matt Navarra, making XPro a paywall service is "bad" for journalists, social media managers, and power users. Nobody is aware of Musk's intentions when he ended free access to Tweetdeck. To assess X based solely on its behavior would be unfair. It's impossible to tell if this is just a test to see if more people will continue to use the subscriber-only tool. Also read: What Data Threads App Collects About You?
