Threads adds post-swipe gestures

Threads has become an official social media website after adding several useful features. It's approaching its first anniversary and we're still getting new and useful additions to the app. Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri just announced this new post-swipe gestures coming to Threads.

The company is constantly working on new features and this brings in more users. A while ago, Threads reached over 150 million users. So the company is clearly doing something right in its approach. A recent feature the platform is getting is the TweetDeck-like feed. This allows you to customize your feed in several ways. What will make this better than X's implementation is the fact that you won't have to pay for access.

Threads gets new post-swipe gestures

Adam Mosseri made one post on Topics Speaking of this new feature, this mechanic will sound familiar if you're big into the online dating scene. In the post, he said you can swipe horizontally across your posts to curate your recommendations.

If you see a post you like and want to see more of it, swipe right on it. If you want to see fewer messages like that, do the opposite and swipe left. Everyone will obviously make comparisons between Tinder and Tinder.

Most other social media apps give you the option to send your recommendation, but Threads' implementation seems simpler. Instead of tapping menus and choosing options, just swipe quickly. It's quick and easy to chase away messages you don't like.

Maybe it's a little too easy. Some users complain about accidentally swiping over messages while scrolling. So this can be a problem for most people. No one wants to accidentally swipe on a post they hate, or vice versa.

If you still want to try out this feature, chances are you have access to it. If not, make sure your app is updated.
