Twitter’s owner, Elon Musk, has stated that the service would relaunch Twitter Notes, a feature for sharing longer pieces of information, as “Articles.”
According to a tweet from Twitter creator Elon Musk, Twitter Notes, a function that was abandoned in 2022 but recently resurrected, will be available again. This time, though, the initiative has been renamed “Articles.”
“Users will be able to upload extremely long, intricate mixed-media articles.” You could write a book if you want, Musk said in a tweet on the function.
Notes was launched prior to Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, and it was exclusively available to writers in the United States, Canada, Ghana, and the United Kingdom. It was more of a trial run.
If followers have been granted access to notes, the ‘Write’ tab on the authors’ profiles also includes a ‘notes’ section where they may access the writers’ whole body of long-form work.
The feature, which was just relaunched, is expected to have the same functionality as before but a different name, and unlike the previous launch, it is expected to be global.
Users expected the notes to follow in the footsteps of previous Twitter initiatives that were cancelled after Musk purchased the service, but that does not appear to be the case.
Tweeting that Notes had been renamed “Articles,” Twitter user @FaustoChou was the first to discover the change. Musk immediately responded to Chou’s Tweet and confirmed the feature’s resurrection.
Elon Musk, however, did not specify a timetable for the feature’s public release or user access.
