Not everything on Twitter revolves around the possible purchase by Elon Musk and the accusations that the platform is plagued by bots. The company has introduced a new function that will allow us to develop and publish more extensive content in article format, which are called Notes.

For a long time, Twitter messages were limited to 140 characters, but after the request of the community, the platform increased that limit to 280 in 2017. With Notes this limit does not change, but an alternative to the classic threads appears to share content larger and with more personality.

Notes, the new Twitter for extensive content

As detailed by the companythe new function allows create articles up to 2,600 words. But, as we can see in the video below, it is also possible to add images, links, and even apply different formatting options, such as italics or bold. Doesn’t it remind you of the blogs of a lifetime?

Although it is not strictly about blogs, some characteristics similar to these, together with the diffusion potential of Twitter, could encourage many to write. And if it is about writing elaborate content, the social network is also promoting the creation of newsletters from purchase and later Revue integration.

Once we write a Note we can insert it in a tweet to share it with our followersbut it will not only be available to them, but also to anyone without a Twitter account, as long as they have the link, which will allow the content to circulate outside the platform as well.

Twitter has enabled this new feature only in some regions, starting with Canada, United States, Ghana and United Kingdom. During this testing phase, only some users from the mentioned countries will be able to create Notes, while everyone will be able to read them. As for a possible global deployment, there are no dates yet.
