Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) announced on Wednesday that it was beta-testing “Notes,” a new tool that would let users submit links to essays both inside and outside of the social media network.

Along with the “Notes” function, Twitter Write will now include newsletter company Revue, which the company purchased last year.
A small group of writers is testing the long-form feature, and Twitter does not provide any other information regarding its larger roll-out. Currently, the firm limits tweets to 280 characters, a feature it started experimenting with almost five years ago.
Users were shocked when Twitter announced in April that it would start testing a new edit tool in the coming months. This feature has been labeled “the most requested feature for many years.”
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc. (TSLA.O), who according to Forbes magazine is the richest man in the world, is currently buying the company for $44 billion.
