X unveils 'Articles' premium long-form content for subscribe

X announced the introduction of a new long-form post format called Articles on Friday. This feature is exclusively available to Premium+ subscribers and verified organisations.

Articles is expected to enable users to publish posts with text formatting, other X posts, and embedded videos and images, resembling a post on a WordPress-like content management system or an article on Medium.

The unveiling of this feature was made by the company’s @Write account, which published an article to showcase the new functionality.

Last year, the social network owned by Elon Musk increased the character limit for long posts to 25,000 for paying users.

However, the character limit for Articles appears to be even higher, set at 100,000 characters, as highlighted by Engadget.

According to a recent post by Chris Bakke, users can include hyperlinked text and bulleted lists in their articles. X purchased Bakke's business, Laskie, last year.

Before Musk engaged with the firm, Twitter launched Notes in 2022 as a long-form publication platform. But under Musk's direction, the Notes project was put on hold, ad-free content was dropped, and the Revenue newsletter platform was shut down.

However, Musk stated in July 2023 that the business was developing a feature that would allow creators to publish long-form pieces utilising a variety of media. He said that this functionality would enable users to post long and complex pieces, and he even hinted that users could produce books on the network.

Creators such as MrBeast and former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson have been urged by Musk regularly to publish directly on X.

The social media network hopes to attract authors who want to publish their work directly on the site by introducing the Articles feature.
