Threads debuted on the web in August with notable omissions from its feature set. One conspicuous absence was the capability to cite others’ contributions, akin to the pre-X era’s retweet function. However, a recent revelation from Instagram’s helmsman, Adam Mosseri, has disclosed that Meta has now introduced the functionality to quote posts while using the desktop version.

The process is straightforward: users need only to click on the familiar repost icon located at the base of a post and select the “Quote” option. By doing so, they can re-share another user’s thread while incorporating their unique commentary.

Furthermore, Mosseri has unveiled an additional enhancement, allowing users to track responses to specific threads on mobile devices by enabling notifications for a 24-hour duration. This can be accomplished by a simple tap on the bell icon situated at the upper-right corner of a post.

From its inception, Meta’s Threads faced criticism for its lack of essential features, particularly during a time when X users grew increasingly exasperated with the company’s attempts to render the service less accessible to non-paying members.

Nevertheless, this latest update signifies that Meta is earnestly striving to incorporate the features that users desire, a necessity if it hopes to rekindle the interest of those who have grown disenchanted with the social network.
