Day by day, more companies are stepping up to seize the opportunity arising from the escalating criticism against Twitter.

In an era where social media platforms are engaged in a fierce competition for user attention, Meta recently made waves by launching Threads, a promising contender designed to vie with Twitter's dominance. Threads, with its unique approach, swiftly captivated the digital realm. In a short span, it garnered a user base exceeding a hundred million, clearly signifying its intention to mount a formidable challenge to Twitter's reign. This disruptive move by Meta seems to have instigated a ripple effect, inspiring ByteDance to infuse Twitter-like features into its own popular app, TikTok.

TikTok, having carved a niche for itself with its short video content, is now charting a new course towards integrating text-based shares. The brainchild of ByteDance, TikTok is set to break the conventions of its own success formula. It plans to move beyond using text solely in comments and captions and promote a new era of fully text-focused shares. It's evident that ByteDance is marching to the beat of its own drum, hot on Meta's heels, gearing up to pose as a potential replacement for Twitter.

The user experience for sharing text posts on TikTok promises to be seamless, replicating the ease users enjoy while sharing photos or videos. Users can weave their narratives in text form, which will then be displayed in a scrollable, vertical format akin to the current visual content. A key feature, the ability to infuse a diverse range of songs and sounds to posts, will continue to be a part of the text-sharing experience, enabling users to create a multi-sensory engagement by pairing their text with appropriate audio accompaniment.
