In 2008two years after the launch of the twitterthe platform received a kind of extension not official for those who wanted longer publications. “When 140 (or 280) characters aren’t enough”is how the developers of TwitLonger describe it. In general, the TwitLonger works as a blank page where users can write their texts and publish directly on the social network.
In 2020, the twitter included the option to share tweets over continuous wires, the popular threads, where users can link several tweets and thus form a more complete text through a group of tweets. The new Articles on the platform would serve to increase the options for users who, eventually, prefer to delve into subjects through larger publications.
