Substack Notes Could be a Twitter Killer
A new place to connect with writers, readers, and those fleeing Twitter after billionaire, Elon Musk purchased the social media company last year.
A few days ago, news outlets reported that Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk began blocking links to Substack publications. In December, we migrated our digital publication over to Substack.
(I tried embedding a tweet from The Verge, but that feature might be blocked now)
These kinds of antics by Musk are becoming more common, and when tech companies feud, people like you and I are most affected.
Our Substack migration marked an important step that would insulate State of the Territory News from a degrading Twitter experience, where Musk attacks journalists who criticize him or his companies.
Notes is a new space on Substack for us to share links, short posts, quotes, photos, and more. I plan to use it for things that don’t fit in the newsletter, like work-in-progress or quick questions.
How to join
Head to substack.com/notes or find the “Notes” tab in the Substack app. As a State of the Territory News subscriber, you’ll automatically see my notes. Feel free to like, reply, or share them around!
You can also share notes of your own. I hope this becomes a space where every State of the Territory News reader can share thoughts, ideas, and interesting quotes from our work on Substack and beyond.
You can always refer to the Notes FAQ for assistance if you encounter any issues. Looking forward to seeing you there!
State of the Territory News is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support our work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
