Elon Musk, the company’s owner and CEO, announced on Saturday that Twitter will soon include a feature that will allow users to add long-form text to their tweets.
Elon didn’t say when the functionality would arrive but promised it would end the “absurdity of notepad screenshots,” as it is on the platform now.
The Tesla boss also stated that the company intends to develop additional tools for creator monetization as well as improvements to the platform’s search functionality.
“Search within Twitter reminds me of Infoseek in ’98! That will also get a lot better pronto,” he wrote.

Following Musk’s announcement, NBC News reporter Ben Collins noted that Twitter had been testing a text-sharing sharing feature prior to Musk’s takeover.
“He’s taking credit here for a bunch of work that some employees did before he laid them off,” he said. Indeed, at the start of the year, app developer Jane Manchun Wong discovered evidence that Twitter was working on a “Articles” feature for posting longer messages.
Twitter also began putting in place some of the infrastructure required to support its revamped Twitter Blue subscription on Saturday.
Users will be able to pay $8 per month to verify their account and gain access to a number of other features, such as the ability to post longer videos and see fewer advertisements.
Musk previously stated that the company would work to support content creators, but he has yet to provide specifics on how the company intends to do so.
Since his takeover, a number of high-profile users have left Twitter, including Nibellion, the owner of one of the platform’s most popular gaming news accounts.
