Instagram's Threads Working On API For Developers.

When Instagram launched Threads, it was missing several features that users would expect from a service similar to Twitter’s. However, over the past few months, the company has been rolling out new features to enhance the user experience.

These updates include polls, the ability to post GIFs, and the option to quote posts on the web. Despite these improvements, Threads still lacks an API, preventing third-party developers from creating features specific to their services.

Instagram’s chief, Adam Mosseri, recently addressed this issue, stating that Threads is indeed working on an API for developers.

In response to a user’s comment about wanting a TweetDeck-like experience for Threads, Mosseri confirmed that an API is in the works. However, he expressed concerns about how the API will be utilized.

Mosseri worries that the launch of the API could result in an influx of publisher content, rather than content from creators. Nevertheless, he acknowledges that developing an API is necessary for the platform’s growth.

Previously, Mosseri stated that Threads would not amplify news, as its focus is on empowering creators.

In an AMA session, he shared his long-term aspiration for Threads to become the leading platform for public conversations online, both in terms of cultural relevance and user size.

While Threads currently has just under 100 million monthly active users, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Instagram’s parent company, is optimistic about its future.

He believes there is a good chance that Threads could reach 1 billion users within the next few years. Meanwhile, Mosseri and his team remain dedicated to improving the user experience on a weekly basis.
