twitter articles will allow users to create long-form posts

After several recent updates, Twitter Blue subscribers can now tweet up to 25,000 characters, up from the standard 280-character limit. Now, controversial CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the platform will soon add a new feature called Twitter Articles.

In a reply to a tweet noting the similarities to the promised Twitter Notes feature, Musk confirmed that Twitter Articles would be a way to post “long, complex articles with mixed media”, even suggesting that “you could publish a book if you want”.

Twitter Articles will remain separate from the main timeline in a section where users can post long-form content articles without the typical character limitations. In addition, users will be able to embed photos, videos, and even other tweets within articles, with published activity showing up in the person’s Twitter profile.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
