It looks like Twitter is going to launch an "articles" feature for "long-form" writing, which means it's basically transforming into another boring old blog website ๐Ÿ˜†

Once upon a time, Twitter was launched as a sort of revolutionary "micro-blogging" platform that transformed Internet commentary and reporting from a delayed medium to a lightning-quick real-time phenomenon.

Then people started posting images of lengthy statements. Then Twitter doubled its character count. And now they're just going whole-hog on it:

Twitter increased its character limit over the years from 140 to 280 to give users more leeway with what they want to say. That's not always enough, though, which is why the term "tweetstorm" to indicate a series of interconnected tweets was coined. People also sometimes post images of lengthy statements instead. Based on a new discovery by Jane Manchun Wong, though, Twitter is working on a new feature that would cater to the needs of those who want to share their thoughts on the website in one lengthy article.

"One lengthy article" in this case is...just a blog post. It's a blog post, right?

Here's Jane Manchun Wong's discovery:

Yeah so that is just a blog post. That's all it would be.

I didn't think they could find a way to make Twitter more unlikable than it already is. But it looks like they're going to do it!
