Twitter tests 'notes' feature with 2,500 word limit - BBC

Twitter is trialling a new feature allowing users to share "notes" as long as 2,500 words.

Twitter said the move was a response to seeing people use the platform to post pictures of longer announcements and steer followers to outside newsletters.

"Since the company's earliest days, writers have depended on Twitter to share their work, get noticed, be read, create conversation - everything but the actual writing," the company said, making the announcement using the new Notes product.

On Wednesday, it said it was folding Revue into the new Notes product, which allows writers to embed gifs, photos and other features into long-form essays that can be read on and off Twitter.

She said the feature would encourage people to stay within the platform itself, rather than linking out to other websites that can host long-form content.

The firm announced in April it was working on an edit button, shortly after Mr Musk - who had called for such a feature - revealed he had bought a large stake in the company.

Mr Musk has also said he sees potential in a subscription model in which people would pay to use the platform.

Dr Nikki Usher, a journalism professor at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, said it was hard to know whether Twitter was trying out new formats out of profitability or a genuine desire to try to improve the platform.

"In this case, one of the things we do know is that people do not like to read long texts online," they told the BBC?
