Twitter “Notes” Allows Writers To Basically Drop Blog Posts on the Platform
While everyone eagerly awaits the ability to edit their tweets on Twitter, there is a new feature to entertain the masses.
Hip Hop Wired says the new feature called “Notes” allows long form writing on Twitter. People will be able to write without worry about the 280 character limit.
Notes will allow blog posts that feature photos, videos and other tweets inside of a Note. You will also be able to share Notes with followers through tweets or on your Twitter page.
Twitter’s editorial director Rembert Browne says the new feature will allow users to share longer form writing without having to start a whole thread. This makes it more convenient since if you’re an avid Twitter user, you know a thread can be kind of confusing or difficult to follow sometimes.
Browne posted in a Note, “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. With Notes, the goal is to fill in that missing piece and help writers find whatever type of success they desire.
But, before you get too excited, Notes is only available to a small group of writers in Canada, Ghana, the United Kingdom and the United States.
