Twitter has always been a platform that lets you express within the confines of a strict character limit. While that limit has relaxed over years, it still takes some talent to say everything on your mind in just 280 characters.
Users have largely resorted to multiple threads or screenshots to say more, and now Twitter wants to make it easy. Called Twitter Notes, it is a feature that will serve as a new long-form type of blogging.
It is currently being tested by select groups of users in the US, UK, Canada and Ghana. It is essentially a way to allow users to embed GIFs, photos and other multimedia into long-form essays that can be read both, on and off Twitter. The new character limit on Notes will be 2,500, which is a significant jump for Twitter users.
