(Reuters) -Twitter Inc said https://twitter.com/TwitterWrite/status/1539640956915290112?s=20&t=3jPttDqaERRcz8wlZIE8nQ on Wednesday it was testing a new feature called “Notes” that would allow users to share essay-like write-ups as a link both on and off the social media platform.

The company also said newsletter firm Revue, which it bought last year, would now be part of Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) Write along with the “Notes” feature.

The long-form feature is being tested by a small group of writers and Twitter did not give more details on its wider roll-out. The company currently has a 280-character limit on tweets, a feature it began testing nearly five years ago.

In April, Twitter surprised users by saying it would in the coming months begin testing a new edit feature, which it called “the most requested feature for many years.”

The company is in the middle of a $44 billion buyout by Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc CEO Elon Musk, the world’s richest person according to Forbes magazine.
