So that is the factor…

Twitter has rolled out longer tweets to Twitter Blue subscribers within the US, with paid customers now in a position to submit tweets up to 4,000 characters lengthy.

If somebody wants or needed it.

Longer tweets will seem in the primary feed at a typical size, and a “Present extra…” indicator will direct customers to the remainder of the content material.

Frankly, it is a unhappy irony that even Twitter could not make good use of the additional characters of their instance, however sure, Twitter Blue customers – all 300,000 of them – will now find a way to submit tremendous lengthy statements about no matter they need within the app.

As defined by Twitter:

“[Twitter Blue users] you may as well create longer tweets in quotes or replies. Commonplace options corresponding to posting media, creating polls and utilizing hashtags nonetheless apply. Anybody shall be in a position to learn longer tweets, however solely Blue followers shall be in a position to create them.»

I do not know if anybody has requested this, however Twitter 2.0 boss Elon Musk appears to imagine that permitting customers to submit long-form content material will finally open up new avenues for monetization, and extra main voices will submit extra content material to the app

I imply, the current Twitter recordsdata are maybe the most effective instance – a staff of journalists handpicked by Elon dug into Twitter’s archives to uncover allegations of corruption and authorities interference, and ended up publishing their findings in ridiculously lengthy tweet threads on the app.

It will have made extra sense to publish them in an extended format, however Musk clearly needs all the eye to be on Twitter – and in such instances, maybe having longer tweets could possibly be priceless.

However I do not know.

It additionally appears short-sighted to solely present this function to Twitter Blue customers. As famous, solely a small fraction of Twitter’s 250 million whole consumer base pay for Blue Tick, and whereas Twitter is at present increasing the providing into new markets, it is arduous to think about it ever catching on.

Because of this most of the hottest creators will not even find a way to use this selection, which looks as if a no brainer. However then once more, Elon will in all probability strive to add a brand new component of monetization that you’ve to pay to be eligible for, which might be his broader view of proscribing entry at this level.

Who is aware of – perhaps it should end up wonderful, and perhaps it should make it simpler to submit on the app what would have been a thread with a number of tweets in a extra participating and fascinating means.

It is actually totally different, very totally different from the same old Twitter choices.
