Twitter has increased its character limit in the past, doubling the former 140-character limit to 280 characters. But that’s nothing compared to a rumored new feature currently at the works over at Twitter HQ. 

According to Jane Manchun Wong, famed security researcher, Twitter is testing longform posts that are no longer limited by word count. Wong’s leaks are so popular that even Twitter’s former CEO Jack Dorsey follows her, and her previous scoops on verification requests and video playback speed options proved accurate. 

Twitter hasn’t confirmed or denied Wong’s scoop, but they did tell CNET that it’s “always looking into new ways to help people start and engage in conversations.” 

Netizens certainly have some thoughts on potential Twitter “Articles,” with some concerned that it could undermine Twitter threads and reduce Twitter’s high engagement. But then again, the new feature could be a huge perk for writers, publications, and press releases.

And of course, infamous celebrities might no longer have to screenshot the Notes app for those embarrassing public apologies. Even better, public figures could use it for those long-winded statements denying allegations. 

Just imagine what fun an “Articles” feature would bring. 

Now, if only they could add an edit button.
