Substack Notes looks and feels like Twitter in many regards. One of Notes' main purposes is to "drive discovery across Substack", according to the company. While anyone may use the search on Substack to find content, Notes is designed for shorter content. Substack users may post links, quotes, comments or images using Notes, and all of this content becomes available for everyone then. Notes may contain recommendations, e.g., when a new post goes up, or when another great writer is discovered on the platform. All users may share and reply on Notes. Compared to Twitter, Notes may have less functionality, but Substack believes that it has an ace up its sleeve that is giving it the edge: there are no ads in Notes.
Substack announced the roll out of a new short-form content posting feature that it calls Notes earlier this week.
