TikTok launches Text Posts

Share post:

TikTok has announced a new feature that allows users to post text-based content. The new feature, called “Text Posts,” allows users to share their thoughts, stories, poems, and other written content on TikTok.

Text Posts are similar to Instagram Stories in that they can be customized with different colored backgrounds, stickers, and music. They can also be shared with followers, commented on, and dueted.

TikTok’s decision to add Text Posts is a sign that the company is looking to expand beyond video. In recent months, TikTok has faced increasing competition from other social media platforms, such as Twitter and Instagram. By adding Text Posts, TikTok is giving users another way to express themselves and stay engaged with the platform.

It allows users to share their thoughts and ideas in a more detailed way than you can with a video, and allows other users to respond yo them in the comments. It also allows users reach a wider audience, as Text Posts can be seen by anyone who follows them, even if they don’t watch videos on TikTok.

To create a Text Post on TikTok, users should open the TikTok app and tap on the “Camera” icon, then select the “Text” option, and type out the text post. Users can also add any desired customizations, such as a background color, stickers, or music.
