Twitter is experimenting with longer ‘Notes’ messages

This new function is called ‘Notes’, and offers the possibility to write longer articles where you also include tweets and images. You can then tweet this article, Twitter points out at a gif example on his Twitter account.

A “small group of writers” helped Twitter test the feature. These authors can already post their Notes on Twitter; companies keep lists of their jobs.

These messages are more or less thrown in the same design as Twitter as soon as you click on them. The site navigation bar is still prominently displayed on the left. If you want to read comments in Note, you must click back to the original tweet.

No more limits

Details about the new feature have been leaking for months. There seems to be another increase in the amount of text you can enter into Twitter: before 2017 you could only fit 140 characters in a tweet, since then it’s been 280. There doesn’t seem to be a limit to a Note.

For now, only certain authors from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Ghana can use it. It’s not clear when this feature will be available to everyone.
