Meta’s been briefing creators on it’s upcoming text-based app — now looking at a possible late June launch.

Details are in my newsletter but I’ll list some highlights 🧵 Image
The decentralized app is built on the back of Instagram but will be compatible with some other apps like Mastodon.

So, users on other apps will be able search for, follow and interact with your profile and content.
The app will have a centralized feed showcasing your followers and recommended content

You can post text updates up to 500 characters (that’s less than an Instagram caption, an extended tweet or a LinkedIn post so be concise!)

And also videos and images.
The app will have creator controls and account safety features.

For example, accounts you’ve blocked on IG will carry over

Hidden words you’ve selected on IG will also carry over.
Based on a (somewhat blurry) example I got, Meta's new app looks a lot like Twitter.

So, could this take over all the Twitter screenshots we've been seeing on the Feed lately? Maybe.

It’s impossible to predict how audiences will respond but this could be an alternative. Image
