Threads is testing hashtags — only without the actual hash (#) symbol.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the app is testing a way to categorize posts with tags. The initial rollout will begin in Australia, with additional countries following.
The tags will appear as clickable blue links, operating like hashtags but minus the symbol. Users can try it out by typing the hash symbol and a category.
Threads is testing many updates, it seems, including a trending topic feed and an API. Since its launch, the X-rival has steadily released new features, adding what many pointed out as crucially missing.
