Meta to Launch a Threads Web Version This Week

The Wall Street Journal says that Meta will unveil the web version of Threads, its rival to X (formerly known as Twitter), early this week.

It has been frustratingly lacking a web version ever since the short-form posting service started.

Earlier this month, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, announced that the firm was working on adding the functionality along with better search (well, search at all, really; at the moment, you can only search for usernames on the platform), and that it will be ready in “the next few weeks.”

But according to WSJ’s sources, the feature’s “launch plans aren’t final and could change.” The previous week, Mosseri wrote on Threads that Meta has been testing “an early version internally for a week or two,” but that it still “needs some work” before being made widely available.

Only a month and a half ago, Threads debuted as a very basic Twitter clone. It immediately surpassed the 100 million user mark and populated with businesses and celebrities, but it lacked a number of essential features, which the firm has been gradually developing. The fact that the company just included a follow feed and the ability to confirm a link to your Mastodon profile suggests that Meta is at least somewhat serious about integrating with the decentralized social network platform Activity Pub.
