Twitter looks to longer content with Notes

June 22, 2022

Twitter announced today that they’re launching Notes, a new feature that allows select users to publish longer content on the platform.

Right now, the feature is in the testing phase. As part of the test, a handful of writers have started sharing lengthier posts with their audiences. 

Note titles can go up to 100 words while the body of a Note is limited to 2,500 words – a stark difference from the current 280-character posting limit. Unlike regular posts, users are also able to make edits after it’s been published.  Read more

Twitter testing Product Drops reminder feature

June 9, 2022

Twitter is introducing a new shopping feature that will help marketers keep audiences up to date on product launches.

With Product Drops, users will be able to tap a “Remind me” button whenever a merchant tweets about an upcoming launch. The button can be found at the bottom of the Tweet. 

If users want to learn more about the product, they can click on the merchant’s Tweet, which will take them directly to a Product Details Page. This page will show the price, photos, and a product description as well as a clickable hashtag that will let users look up what other shoppers on the platform have to say about the product.
