Twitter is shutting down its newsletter service Revue next year. From January 18, 2023, users will no longer be able to log in to the platform. Until then, users will still be able to download their subscription lists, newsletter issues and analyses. After that, all data would be deleted.

In January 2021, Twitter acquired the newsletter service Revue. Since then, the platform helped its users create newsletters and integrate them directly into their Twitter timelines, among other things. But starting next year, that’s supposed to be the end of it.

Revue: Twitter is stamping out its newsletter platform

According to an official announcement from Revue, it will no longer be possible to use the newsletter service after January 18, 2023. Both the platform and all the data will then be discontinued.

Until then, however, users would still have the option to download their subscription lists, newsletter issues and analytics. The platform announced:

This was not an easy decision for us to make, because we know Revue has a passionate user base made up of people like you. We thank everyone who has used our service over the years and hope we can continue to help you build a community with your readers on Twitter.

Twitter is working on tweets of up to 4,000 characters

The platform also said that all paid subscriptions will be discontinued as early as Dec. 20, 2022, so that they end on the billing cycle. The company said this is to prevent subscribers from being asked to pay after the shipping deadline.

Meanwhile, according to social media guru Alessandro Paluzzi, as well as CEO Elon Musk himself, Twitter is working on a way to increase the character count of tweets from 280 to 4,000. However, such a function is unlikely to make up for the possibilities users had with Revue.
