During a companywide meeting last month, Alex Heath and Meta executives shared that Instagram Threads will integrate with the decentralized social media protocol used by Mastodon.
One of the executives stated that they’ve been hearing from creators who are interested in having a sanely run platform. However, the news of launching Twitter’s competitor came after its ongoing controversial things on the platform.
Since Elon Musk owned Twitter, he took many steps, including blocking registered users, implementing temporary rate limits, and much more. These steps resulted in widespread issues over the weekend, with users being unable to browse the service.
Now, the platform is also rolling out some sudden changes to TweetDeck. It is a tool mostly used by many journalists and social media professionals. In about a month, the tool launched a paid feature.
It halted new user signups for over a day to fix issues due to waves of people flooding the platform.
