Big changes are afoot at Twitter. Much of the news focuses on Elon Musk's closer by the day $44 billion acquisition of the company, and the open platform he claims he will create. However, on the technical side, major changes are also happening. For example, Twitter is reportedly working on introducing long-form content called Twitter Notes.
This report comes the same week it emerged Twitter could give tweet authors the power to review/edit controversial/offensive language from replies.
In terms of Twitter Notes, the feature will bring arguably the biggest change to the platform in years. After all, Twitter is a micro-blogging network famous for its short-form posting. In fact, it is what separates the company from any other information platform.
Back in 2017 when the company increased the character limit of Tweets from 140 to 280, there were shockwaves. Some loved it and others hated it.
Well, it seems Twitter is now ready to go a step further. Twitter Notes will allow users to write long-form content such as articles, essays, reviews, or just nonsense (most likely this). Once the note is published, it can then be tweeted and shared as a link. Readers can click the link to expand the content into a single note.
Twitter has not said anything official about the new feature, but it is thought to be launching soon. On the surface, Twitter Notes could be the end of the Thread feature that made its debut in 2017. Threads allow users to link tweets together if they have content that is longer than the 280-character limit.
While the Twitter Notes feature will expand the capabilities of the platform, it may also devalue it from its core purpose. Let us know what you think about this feature, is it a yay or a nay?
Tip of the day: When Windows 10 or Windows 11 has issues, it's not rare to run into startup problems. Corrupted Windows files, incorrect system configuration, driver failure, or registry tweaks can all cause this issue.
Using Windows startup repair can fix boot issues caused by the most prevalent issues. Though it may seem that all is lost when you run into startup problems, it's important to try a Windows boot repair so you can at least narrow down the source of the issue. If it doesn't work, you may have to reinstall the OS or test your hardware.
