Over the past few months, “we’ve been building the Threads API to enable creators, developers and brands to manage their Threads presence at scale and easily share fresh, new ideas with their communities from their favorite third-party applications,” Chen said. The API currently enables users to authenticate, publish threads, and fetch the content they posted through these tools. “Soon, we will enable reply moderation and insights capabilities,” said the company.
