Twitter Develops New Feature for Extended Articles

by admin
Twitter Articles

Do you recall Twitter Notes? This feature was meant to enable Twitter users to express themselves without being bound by the conventional Twitter character limit, which was just 280 characters at the time. Now, after several updates throughout the year, Twitter Blue subscribers can compose tweets of up to 25,000 characters. CEO Elon Musk has recently hinted that the team continues to refine the Notes feature, with plans to rebrand it as Twitter Articles.

In response to a tweet about the name transformation, Musk revealed that Articles would serve as a platform for users to publish “lengthy, intricate articles with mixed media content.” He added, “You could even publish a book if you like.”

Twitter Notes, which was formally introduced the previous year, was marketed as “a method to write more extensively on Twitter.” It was initially made available to a select group of users in Canada, Ghana, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Interestingly, this was announced before Elon Musk took control later that year but following his announcement of his intention to purchase the company. This marks the first time Twitter has acknowledged the feature since then.

In terms of its layout, Twitter Articles will resemble blog posts but will be hosted on Twitter. Articles, distinct from the main timeline, will provide a space for users to post in-depth content without the typical restrictions of a tweet. This includes the ability to incorporate photos, videos, and even other tweets within an Article. Users can distribute Articles via tweets, and any published Articles will appear on your Twitter profile.

The exact timeline for the release of Articles to the general public remains uncertain. The feature continues to be in a developmental phase since its inception last year and is only accessible to a chosen group of users.
