Threads Update Will Include Chronological Feed of Followers

Threads is a brand new social media platform, which means users can expect a myriad of new features coming soon.

The updates are already in the works for Threads, the Twitter rival from Meta, including a chronological feed that exclusively shows posts from people you actually follow.

Threads has exploded in popularity since launching last week, amassing an impressive 100 million followers in the short period of time. The influx of users has shaken up the social media world, particularly over at Twitter, where the Musk-headed company has struggled on everything from content moderation to ad revenue.

Threads is far from perfect, with a wide range of features still in development, but one of the more requested upgrades has already been confirmed.

Threads CEO Confirms Upcoming Update

In a Threads exchange last week, CEO Adam Mosseri confirmed that a chronological feed that only shows posts from users that you follow is “on the list” of future updates coming to the popular social media platform.

If that isn’t convincing enough, Mark Zuckerberg — the CEO of Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and now Threads — posted the “thumbs up” emoji in response to the request, which should be all the proof you need that this feature is coming soon.

No timeline has been revealed for this feature’s roll out, but given the speed with which Threads has become popular and the resources available to its parent company Meta, it’s safe to assume you’ll see a chronological feed of just your followed users sooner rather than later.

What Other Features Will Be Added to Threads?

While a home feed is one of the most requested features to add to Threads, it certainly isn’t the only one that is coming down the pipeline. Mosseri and Zuckerberg have hinted at a few other additions that will be rolling out over the course of the platform’s lifetime, including:

  • The ability to edit posts
  • Support for multiple languages
  • Simple account switching

That’s not all, though. Threads, like its photo-focused compatriot Instagram, is lacking when it comes to desktop functionality, prohibiting posting if you aren’t in the app. Fortunately, Mosseri notes that they are “working on it,” so you should be able to avoid work on your laptop as well as your phone.

Will Threads Kill Twitter?

Given the surge in popularity only a week into its existence, there are many wondering if Threads could actually be the Twitter alternative to take down the social media platform once and for all.

It’s certainly much more plausible than it was even a few years ago. Twitter has seen its fair share of issues since Elon Musk took over, from advertisers fleeing the platform to content moderation taking a serious hit. Heck, the company isn’t even paying rent, which could lead to evictions from its headquarters.

Threads is already facing a bit of controversy, though, which may make the ascent to top dog that much more difficult. For starters, the privacy policy is drawing criticism, considering it follows many of the problematic practices of the other Meta apps like Facebook and Instagram. On top of that, Twitter has already threatened a lawsuit against Meta for essentially copying the app to steal users.

All that to say, we’re in the early stages of the Twitter vs Threads discussion, so it’s hard to say which one will come out on top. Either way, it’s shaping up to be quite the battle.
