Elon Musk, the owner and CEO of Twitter, said on Saturday that users will soon be able to add long-form text to their tweets. Musk didn’t say when the feature would be available, but he did say that it would end the “ridiculousness of notepad screenshots.” He also said that the company plans to work on more tools to help creators make money and make searches on the platform better. “Searching on Twitter makes me think of Infoseek from 1998. This, too, will get much better quickly “He put words on paper.
Before Musk took over, Twitter had been testing a way to share text messages. He said, “He’s taking credit for a lot of work that some employees did before he fired them.” In fact, Jane Manchun Wong, who is known for trying out new features in apps, found evidence at the beginning of the year that Twitter was working on a way to post longer messages called “Articles.”

On Saturday, Twitter also started putting in place some of the infrastructures it needs to support its updated Twitter Blue subscription. Users will be able to pay $8 per month to verify their account and get access to a number of other features, such as the ability to post longer videos and see fewer ads. Musk has said before that Twitter would try to help people who make content, but he hasn’t said how the company plans to do that. Since he took over the company, many popular Twitter users have left, including Nibellion, who ran one of the most popular gaming news accounts.
