Twitter tests 'notes' feature with 2,500 word limit

Twitter is trialling a new feature allowing users to share "Notes" as long as 2,500 words. Twitter said the move was a response to seeing people use the platform to post pictures of longer announcements and steer followers to outside newsletters. The test will run for two months and involve a small group of writers in Canada, Ghana, the UK and US.The new feature aims to keep audiences in the Twitter eco-system, with readers able to see a headline and access the "Note" by clicking on a link. "Since the company's earliest days, writers have depended on Twitter to share their work, get noticed, be read, create conversation - everything but the actual writing," the company said, making the announcement using the new "Notes" product.
