Twitter Canada Begins Testing New ‘Notes’ Longform Writing Feature

Twitter has today announced that Canada will be one of its test markets for ‘Notes,’ a new feature that will allow people to publish longform written content on the platform for the first time.


The new Notes feature comes via a new team at Twitter called Twitter Write. According to the company, the Twitter Write team is focused on building tools and communities so readers and writers can get the most out of Twitter. This team will be focused on improving and enhancing the Twitter experience for writers everywhere.

Here’s what Twitter says the users can do with its new Notes feature:

  • Notes will give your favorite writers on Twitter the chance to go beyond 280 characters for the first time, using a rich-text editor to capture articles, thought pieces, and other kinds of content.
  • Starting today, we’re partnering with a small group of writers from Canada, the US, the UK, and Ghana to test drive the feature.
  • While these writers will come from one of these four countries, their Notes will be seen and read by Twitter audiences worldwide.
  • Look out for Notes on your timeline on iOS, Android, and web starting today. These writers will also have a Notes tab on their profile.
