Threads might gain a direct message function like on Twitter.


A feature that mirrors Twitter’s Direct Messaging (DMs) is purportedly going to be added to Threads, Meta’s social media platform. Users will be able to privately chat one another on the same platform thanks to this functionality. Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram, initially said that this capability will not be added to Threads anytime soon. DMs may be “coming soon” to Threads, according to a leaked internal letter from Instagram that Business Insider has published.

The memo also made mention of Threads getting more features. This was further supported by social media analyst Matt Navarra, who posted a section of the document on Twitter. According to the article, the corporation has not yet provided a firm release date for these functionalities on the platform.

Users will be able to have private talks about delicate subjects they’d rather not discuss in public thanks to the advent of DMs on Threads. Users of Threads previously had to resort to other apps for these private conversations. Users don’t seem to be using Meta’s other products, like Messenger or Instagram, to satisfy this desire.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, recently posted his opinions on the platform’s future path in a thread on Threads. Despite conceding that the Threads community is still developing, Zuckerberg expressed his hope about how it is coming together. He said that Threads’ initial growth has been extraordinary, with tens of millions of users coming back to the site every day. This suggests that Threads will continue on a positive path and outperform their goals.

The next crucial step for Threads, according to Zuckerberg, is to make sure that millions of users continue to interact with the network on a daily basis. While conceding that it will take time for things to stabilise, he emphasised the necessity of enhancing the fundamentals and user retention. After these fundamental elements are established, attention will turn to expanding the community.
