A way to share posts and short-form content on Substack
I look forward to finding new ways to share my wisdom and genius.
This is going to be such an amazing way to connect with my readers. Y’all have no idea how much we are going to grow because if this. I am so excited to push my community farther by being able to have a Twitter-esque platform within my own publication. I am SO excited.
Hooray! This is a wonderful thing. I've been using it for a few weeks and so far, it's pretty much everything I'd want to see in a service like this ... plus more besides, like the way it integrates with everything else at Substack. As a standalone, it'd be great, but as a plugged-in part of the whole, it's just terrific how easy it is to use and to click sideways from it into other stuff you're doing on this platform.
Madly good. I hope the whole damn world drops by to give it a spin.
As a recovering Twitter addict, I can't help feeling like someone just brought an 8-ball to what I thought was a chill wine and cheese party...
This is exciting.
One unexpected benefit already: finding great Substacks that weren't on my radar.
Excited to experiment with this!
I'm super excited to try Notes. Connecting with other writers and readers is all I do on other social platforms *cough* the bird one *cough* so hopefully this can augment, if not replace, my presence there. Thanks for doing this, Substack team.
Just tried to Restack and got a 500!
Honestly, I'm surprised the Substack crowd is responding so positively. So many "this replaces Twitter!" comments out there. Twitter is what I came here to avoid, so formatting these new posts to look like tweets is ??? Big thumbs down, going to be spending much less time on Substack to avoid this new change. In fact, I was getting ready to start my own Substack, and I've just about lost all interest from this update.
So excited for the new Notes tool!
Hell yeah! This is great news!
There definitely needs to be a way to now browse Notes by topic. Discovery is pretty rough on that front.
What if I only want to receive long form content from people and don’t want to see their Notes? How do I change that? I’m seeing a lot of people on Notes who I don’t subscribe to and not sure I want them in my feed.
This is a great way to connect with everyone! I can’t wait to try it!
