iOS: The Elusive Headline – X’s Update Conceals Web News Revealing Merely Domain Names and Visuals

Prior to this, there were rumors circulating from Fortune that X would no longer display headlines when posting links from external platforms. Only a featured image, article summary, and domain linked to the external content would be shown. However, X has now updated and completely removed external web headlines on the iOS system. This change was initiated by Elon Musk himself, as he wanted to enhance the overall appearance of the platform.

In his own words, Elon Musk expressed his desire for users to directly post through X to increase engagement on the platform. He further mentioned that algorithm X is currently working on improving efficiency in terms of user experience on the platform. Consequently, links will not receive as much attention, as they reduce the time spent on the platform due to users clicking away. Therefore, the best approach is to post lengthy content directly on this platform.

TLDR: X, under the guidance of Elon Musk, has eliminated external web headlines on the iOS system to enhance aesthetics. Musk encourages users to post directly on X, as links tend to decrease engagement. Lengthy content is preferred on the platform. This update reflects a focus on maximizing user experience and promoting user-generated content. Source: The Verge.
