Bad news for X. His number one enemy stole a function from the old Twitter, that’s what it is.

These are not too happy times for X, aka Twitter. The platform owned by Elon Musk is dealing with some controversies related to the latest features introduced for users. With discontent and muttering from the community that could push for a change of direction. But not only that, because there is competition that is increasingly insistent.

In particular, you will have heard about Threads these days. That is, the new Instagram service which is very reminiscent of the X interface and which is achieving record numbers. With more and more people already declaring that they have (perhaps only temporarily) abandoned the former Twitter to publish content on the Meta service. But it doesn’t end there, because the historical number one enemy of Musk’s service has recently stolen a function from X itself. Here’s what it’s about, it’s a real disappointment!

Enemy of X steals a feature from the old Twitter: what it is

In addition to Threads, there is another social platform that has historically always been contrasted with X (or Twitter, whatever you prefer). That is Bluesky, which never achieved the hoped-for success in Italy but which in the coming months aims to become increasingly dominant in the social network market with very useful and interesting features.

According to what Techcrunch.com reports, among these there will be one that has been exclusive to X for a long time. That is, the ability to watch posts even without logging in with an account. In fact, there is a setting that registered users can activate by accessing Settings, Moderation and then Disconnected Visibility. And which serves precisely to prevent anyone from having the opportunity to touch the published contents.

We’ll see if this news will push more and more people to sign up for Bluesky. This is certainly a useful move to ensure greater indexing of content published on Google, so that more and more users will discover the service and be able to explore it before deciding whether to sign up. Meanwhile, the apps for iOS and Android have reached 2 million users, with some moderation tools and advanced protocols that could see the light as early as next year.
