What you need to know

  • Twitter is adding Revue links to people's profiles.
  • People with Revue newsletters will have them appear in their profiles.
  • People will be able to click through to the newsletters from Twitter.

Twitter is adding support for Revue paid newsletters, putting links to them right inside the profiles of creators. With the change in effect, Twitter users who already have a Revue newsletter will see them appear in their own profiles.

With the links in Twitter profiles, people will be able to click through to Revue newsletters without having to find them manually.

Right now the feature is rolling out on the web and Android, while Revue says that support on iPhones is coming "soon."

Right out the gate Revue says that the feature will be live for all newsletter writers immediately, although the wider Twitter userbase will see the feature eventually. Right now, it'll only be available to a small test group. No timescale for when the feature will be made available to all has been shared, nor do we know how big or small that test group is.

It isn't immediately clear whether any of this will appear for those using third-party Twitter apps like Tweetbot and Twitteriffic, but I have to assume that you'll need to use Twitter's own apps for any of this to kick in. Once it's available on iPhone at all, that is.
