TikTok, the app where you can create and watch short videos, has a brand new feature: text posts. You might think this sounds much like X (was Twitter) or Threads, but this only scratches the surface.
With the new TikTok text posts available in the UAE, you can write virtually anything you want and add elements that will make them look awesome. The choices are endless, from sounds, locations, comments, duets, and much more.
TikTok says text posts give creators “a new way to create” on the app. You can use them to share stories, poems, lyrics, and even recipes. This makes it a lot easier to create and share more content.
However, text posts do not work in the same vein as other platforms like X or Threads. They’re not for chatting and more for showing off your creativity. Think Instagram posts, but with text instead of pictures.
If you’ve been active on TikTok, they rolled out this new option Monday, July 24th, to everyone on the platform.
Some users have already started to use text posts to express their thoughts and jokes. Others have said that they have not fully embraced it.
It’s not just text posts. TikTok is slowly adding more features to the app, like shopping, playlists, and more.
