If you have been anxious to launch an email newsletter via Twitter, now is the perfect time to make use of it after acquiring the Dutch newsletter platform Revue last month.
Twitter recently announced that it has acquired Revue, a Dutch startup that allows users to publish and monetize email newsletters. Revue counts major publishers like Vox Media and The Markup as customers. Revue has been known to have raised over €400,000 from several angel investors.
How it Works
Competing with Andreessen Horowitz-backed Substack, among others, the newsletter network retains integration support for a range of third-party platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Wallet, Product Search, Instapaper, and even RSS feeds. They will drag and drop stories from those streams to the newsletter until consumers have incorporated these resources.
Users may manually connect subscribers’ email addresses to the current avatar, or import a list from Mailchimp or a CSV format. Twitter also reveals on the welcome screen, which was first spotted last week by reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, that its newsletter will help authors and publishers raise money from paying subscribers.
Revue lets users plan their newsletters, as before. All in all, this whole workflow does not seem to have any extra functionality.
