Twitter Introduces 10,000-Character Long Tweets for Blue Subscribers
Twitter has recently implemented a new feature for its Blue subscribers, allowing them to post up to 10,000 character-long posts. This is in an attempt for the social network to compete with newsletter platforms. Additionally, support was also added for bold and italic text formatting. In February of this year, Twitter introduced 4,000-character-long tweets as an alternative to threads.
In February this year, the social media platform rolled out 4,000-character-long tweets for its Blue subscribers as a way of encouraging users to compose longer posts rather than posting multiple threads. With this new feature in place, creators can offer subscriptions at different per-month prices based on their preferences; $2.99, $4.99, and $9.99, respectively.
To be eligible for monetization through this platform, however, there are certain rules that must be followed by creators who wish to join the program; they need to be at least 18 years old with an active following of no less than 10,000 followers and have posted at least 25 times within the last 30 days before being considered eligible for such plans offered by Twitter blue subscription services.
The implementation of bold and italic texts also adds another layer of expression that wasn’t available before on the platform; users can now emphasize certain words or phrases that they want their readers to pay attention to without having any issues regarding limitations being put on them by the app itself other than its 140 character limit per tweet rule which remains intact even after these changes have been made.
The addition of 10,000-character-long tweets by Twitter is definitely poised to give it a more competitive edge against other rival newsletter platforms with similar offerings, especially when coupled together with other features like bold and italic text formatting, which add flavor to the content creation process.
