Twitter has shut down its newsletter product, known as Revue. Reports have been saying that the service would be axed for over a month, but it is now finally have been confirmed. 

People won’t be able to access their accounts after that date, and all the service’s data will be deleted, according to a help article on the Revue site. 

Before then, authors who used the service will be able to download lists of their subscribers, as well as an archive that includes their analytics and writing. 

Revue also alerted its users to this information via email and has said that it’ll cancel paid newsletter subscriptions starting December 20th, so people won’t be charged for newsletters they won’t get. 

Twitter acquired Revue in January 2021, hoping to make its platform a better place for the long form writers and journalists that have tended to congregate there. 

It also helped the social network compete with newsletter platforms like Substack and Ghost, as well as with Facebook, which was, at the time, rumored to be looking for a way into the newsletter business as well.
