In a separate development, Meta, the parent company of Instagram, is reportedly in the process of developing a text-based app to directly compete with Twitter. As per Bloomberg News, the app is expected to be launched as early as June and is currently undergoing testing with influencers and creators. Meta has initiated communication with talent agencies and celebrities to gauge interest in trying out an early version of the app, which will be integrated with Instagram.
