(Reuters) – Twitter Inc. (NYSE 🙂 announced Tuesday that it had acquired Revue email newsletter startup as the microblogging platform wants to attract users who want to make money from their followers.
Twitter, which did not disclose the deal value, said it would make Revue's premium features free to all users starting Tuesday and lower the newsletter fee paid so authors can keep more of the subscription income.
Revue was founded about six years ago in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and has clients like Vox Media, Chicago Sun-Times and Markup, and competes with services like Substack.
Upon acquisition, Revue will act as a standalone service and expand its team by hiring key roles in engineering, design, research and data science.
Twitter, based in San Francisco, Calif., Said the acquisition would provide a new way for writers and curators of long-form content to engage with their audiences. (https: //
