Twitter is about to make major interface changes and the long text feature may roll out in early February, the platform’s CEO Elon Musk announced today.
In a tweet posted this morning, Mr. Musk listed several changes to Twitter’s user interface that will be implemented soon.
“Swipe right/left to toggle between recommended and followed tweets rolling out later this week. First part of a much larger UI overhaul. Bookmark button (de facto silent as) on Tweet details rolling out a week later. Long tweets in early February,” he tweeted.
Twitter’s CEO had announced in November that the platform will soon allow users to post long text in their tweets, which now have a character limit of 280.
“Twitter will soon add the ability to add long text to tweets, ending the absurdity of notepad screenshots,” he had said at the time.
The changes announced today are the latest in a series of changes since Musk acquired the microblogging site in a $44 billion deal.
Enabling long text in tweets has been a hotly debated issue, with many demanding the feature and others warning that if long messages are allowed, Twitter will no longer be unique.
Those opposed to the move also claim that users can currently post in detail by using the threads option and that removing the limit on characters is not required.
