Threads is currently in the process of testing its post-scheduling capabilities as the platform’s API undergoes initial live testing. In addition, the app is planning to introduce reply moderation and analytics insights capabilities for specific third-party partners as part of this trial.


The significance of this development lies in the fact that post scheduling on Threads provides brands and publishers with the ability to efficiently manage and expand their presence on the platform. Furthermore, the analytics insights offer businesses a deeper understanding of engagement on Threads, empowering brands to optimize their content more effectively.

According to Jesse Chen, an engineer at Threads, the Threads API has been under development for several months with the goal of enabling creators, developers, and brands to manage their Threads presence at scale. This includes easily sharing new ideas with their communities through their favorite third-party applications. The current functionalities of the API allow users to authenticate, publish threads, and retrieve the content they’ve posted through these tools. Moreover, future updates will enable reply moderation and insights capabilities.

Currently, the testing phase is limited to a select group of partners and independent developers. Although access to the Beta version is restricted at this stage, Threads aims to make the API widely available by the end of June.

The timing of this initiative is crucial as Threads aims to maintain a conversational atmosphere on its platform while also diversifying its content sources to foster growth. While the app has emphasized its commitment to keeping excessive brand presence at bay, it acknowledges the need to broaden its content options. With only a small portion of its users generating the majority of the content, Threads recognizes the importance of offering additional posting options to enhance the platform’s appeal and expand its growth potential.
