Beyond smart TVs, the social media network is also exploring video games, podcasts and long-form writing. Taking on legacy media, X on Friday introduced ‘Articles’ which is a new way to share long-form written content on the platform.

Premium users who subscribe to X services now have the ability to publish articles on the platform. These articles can include stylized text, embedded images, and videos. Additionally, users can format their text using various features such as headings, sub-headings, bold, italics, strikethrough, indentation, numerical lists, and bulleted lists.(With Inputs From IANS)
