X Might Soon Roll Out Autosave Feature for Posts

Elon Musk’s tenure as the CEO and owner of Twitter has been fraught with controversy. The latest move involved changing the brand name to X, which led to a dramatic reduction in the company’s valuation. In spite of the fact that this is the case, X has also introduced new features that many are claiming will push the platform forward. The latest of these changes has to do with the experimentation surrounding an autosave feature.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that X might soon roll out a feature that would users to have their posts saved automatically. Such a feature is useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up reducing the need to manually save drafts. Users will also be less likely to lose posts that they are working on than might have been the case otherwise.

The post composer that you can write your posts in will have this feature at some point in the future, although there is no way to no when a wider rollout might occur. X has been experimenting with several features, and not all of them end up seeing the light of day. This might also be one of the most popular updates that X has seen under Elon Musk’s control since Community Notes which help to dispel information thanks to user submitted clarifications that other users can vote on.

It will be interesting to see what type of impact this update has on the future of the platform. X has been struggling a lot as of late, and Elon Musk’s inflammatory rhetoric and confusing policies might have had a roll to play in that. It also remains to be seen whether this feature will be available across various devices or if it will be solely reserved for desktop users. Musk has been attempting to maximize desktop users since this will reduce the amount of profit he needs to split with Apple or Google for being up on their platforms.
