Twitter ready to launch long-form Notes feature in ‘the coming weeks’: report - The Verge
Twitter is reportedly reading to launch a new long-form writing feature, named either Notes or Articles. Rumors of the feature have been swirling for months but it seems the tool is ready to go.
Twitter is ready to launch a new long-form blogging feature named Twitter Notes in “the coming weeks,” according to a report from TechCrunch.
Leaks and reports of such a feature have been circulating for months. In May, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong shared screenshots of a feature named either Twitter Notes or Twitter Articles, that let users write formatted blog posts complete with pictures, links, and embedded tweets. More screenshots of the same tool were shared in April by another app researcher, Nima Owji, which showed options for users to share posts with their followers, or create standalone links for posts to share elsewhere on the web.
According to TechCrunch, the feature is currently called Notes, and is being given a prominent place in beta versions of the Twitter app. But while the feature is reportedly ready to launch in the coming weeks, it could be delayed by further experimentation.
