Enabling long-form text in tweets has been a much debated issue, with many warning that Twitter will cease to be unique if long posts are allowed.
Twitter is set for big changes in interface and the long-form text feature may be rolled out early in February, the platform's CEO Elon Musk announced today.
In a tweet posted this morning, Mr Musk listed several changes in Twitter's user interface that will be introduced soon.
"Easy swipe right/left to move between recommended vs followed tweets rolls out later this week. First part of a much larger UI overhaul. Bookmark button (de facto silent like) on Tweet details rolls out a week later. Long form tweets early Feb," he tweeted.
The Twitter CEO had in November announced that the platform will soon allow users to post long-form text in their tweets, which now have a character limit of 280.
