As the social media fight heats up, TikTok introduces text-only posts.

According to the company, the new function provides users with “another way to express themselves.”

TikTok introduced a new music streaming service earlier this month, competing with platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.

On Monday, Elon Musk’s Twitter dropped its iconic blue bird logo in favor of a black and white X.

TikTok users will now have three options on the app: publish photographs, videos, or text.

They will also be able to personalize their postings by adding music, location, or Duets, which are video reactions to other TikTok users’ posts.

“With these features, your text posts will be just as dynamic and interactive as any video or photo post,” TikTok explained.

Is Musk correct in removing the Twitter logo?
TikTok, which is owned by China’s ByteDance, just launched a new music streaming service, TikTok Music, in Brazil and Indonesia and renamed as X.

The company also launched a beta version of the service in Singapore, Mexico, and Australia last week.

According to a spokeswoman, users will be able to “listen, share, and download the music they’ve discovered on TikTok, as well as share their favorite tracks and artists with their TikTok community.”

Other enhancements, like as a new landscape mode, are being tested with select customers around the world.

TikTok surpassed Google as the most popular internet destination in the world in 2021, with more hits.

That same year, the app claimed to have more than one billion active users worldwide.

Rival social media companies, such as Instagram owner Meta and X, Mr Musk’s renamed Twitter site, have been at odds in recent weeks.

Meta’s new Threads platform went live this month on Apple and Android app stores in 100 countries, including the United Kingdom.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, later announced that his company’s Threads platform had signed up more than 100 million members in less than five days.

Also this week, Twitter’s blue bird emblem was changed by a logo with a white X on a black background.

According to Mr Musk, the term “tweets” would be replaced to “x’s”.
