Twitter to launch a new long-form blogging feature called Twitter Notes in the coming weeks. With the new feature, Twitter will let users create articles with rich formatting and media uploads which can then be tweeted and shared with followers.

According to the GIF, users can create a note using the ‘Write’ option and can then embed the Note in their tweet.

App researcher Jane Manchun Wong first spotted the feature in May and shared screenshots on Twitter.

A series of images shared by researcher Nima Owji in April 2022 showcased its ability to save articles as drafts. Researchers identified the feature as Twitter Article, according to TechCrunch. Users would be able to locate the feature next to ‘Tweets and replies’ on their profile.

The long-form writing feature will bring changes to Twitter’s character limit, which was doubled to 280 characters in 2017 from the previous 140 characters.
