In the present day, all present Revue publication customers obtained an e-mail letting them know that as of Jan. 18, 2023, the service can be discontinued.
Revue is a protracted kind content material publication service that Twitter acquired and built-in into the platform. It was fairly useful to those that used it because it seamlessly inspired Twitter followers to subscribe to the publication. And naturally, it supplied a protracted kind content material choice that ordinary tweets couldn’t.
Right here’s the complete textual content:

Whereas that is clearly according to Elon Musk’s continued efforts to scale back bills inside the Twitter platform after his takeover, it also needs to be famous that the Revue characteristic had not been outstanding or nicely promoted of late, which suggests there’d possible been a decline in utilization for months, and a corresponding decline in allotted assets.
This isn’t the primary time Twitter has acquired after which closed a protracted kind content material platform. In 2013, Twitter shut down the Posterous running a blog platform after shopping for it. And Fb has equally struggled to take care of an built-in lengthy kind content material platform. Their Notes platform was shut down after languishing for years.
Apparently, Musk has stated not too long ago that he intends to increase the size of tweets from 280 characters to 4,000.
Whereas it stays to be seen whether or not such a personality enhance will occur, or if it should merely be a pure change in what one can tweet, or a unique sort of tweet (i.e. LinkedIn put up vs. article), clearly there are different initiatives within the works to present Twitter customers lengthy kind content material choices.
Regrettably, the concept of Revue was strong and one thing that Twitter did not capitalize on as a part of their initiative to present creators and influencers a monetizable platform. Creators nonetheless produce other choices like Tremendous Tweets and different advantages of Twitter Blue. However clearly these options aren’t but bringing within the quantity of creators and content material that the platform must drive actual income for themselves.
And on the finish of the day, the continued lesson for all manufacturers is creators isn’t to belief platforms like social networks to deal with your content material. Fortuitously, on this case, Revue customers a minimum of have 30 days to obtain their subscribers and content material and migrate them to a brand new service. For that, I personally suggest AWeber.
