The California based American communications company – Twitter – recently announced the release of a trial feature called ‘Notes’, which will allow users to type up to 2,500 words, instead of the current provision to post a maximum of 280 characters.
Twitter states that this trial was in accordance with the increased number of people trying to publish long-format texts on the application as part of long announcements and more. The objective of the feature is to mainly sustain their reading and writing audiences, as they would now be able to share and explore essays and articles as a whole on the application and not wander off to other applications for these uses.
“A small group of writers are helping us test Notes. They can be read on and off Twitter, by people in most countries”, said Twitter. The test is said to run for 2 months and will include small groups of writers from Ghana, Canada, the UK, and the US. This new feature didn’t just spring out of nowhere as the company’s business prospects are under inspection owing to Elon Musk’s intentions to take over the company, thereby putting it in a potentially compromising situation.
The trial also came up as a result of the purchase of Revue – a Dutch Newsletter start-up – by Twitter last year. On Wednesday, they stated that Revue would be clasped into the Notes feature, which would allow users to insert photos, gifs and other features into long-form content that can be read on ad off Twitter. Another exciting facility is the provision to edit texts even after publishing notes.
