New ‘Twitter Articles’ Feature Being Tested to Let Users Post Longer Tweets

twitter articles feature test

from TikTok-like video tweets to emoji reactions, the micro-blogging platform Twitter is often seen experimenting with new features it might launch soon. As the latest addition to this list, it is now said to be working on a ‘Twitter Articles’ feature, which will let you create long-form tweets. Here are the details.

Twitter Articles for Lengthy Tweets Might Launch Soon

Renowned reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong hinted at the launch of the Twitter Articles feature via a tweet recently. You can expect to find a dedicated section for the Articles feature on Twitter, allowing users to post long form tweets without worrying about the current 280-character limit.

This feature will come in handy when a user wants to post something important that just can’t be concise. It will also dismiss the need for creating multiple threads to talk about a certain topic or posting images with the whole text. All in all, it will make the whole process a lot easier.

This feature, if it launches, will prove to be the total opposite of Twitter’s “short and sweet” format. To recall, back in the day, it had a character limit of 140, which later got doubled back in 2017. It would be interesting to see how the feature works and if it attracts users.

However, you should know that not much is known about the alleged Twitter Articles feature. There’s no word on when it will roll out to users. There are chances it may never see the light of the day, considering companies conduct a lot of tests but it’s not necessary for all of them to turn into the final product. But Twitter is pushing out new features at lightning speeds, so we are hopeful. The company recently added the ability to set NFT profile pictures on the platform.

That said, a launch might be in the pipeline sooner rather than later. We will update you with official details soon. Hence, stay tuned, and do tell us about your thoughts on this new feature in the comments below!
