How to create a longer post
Longer posts are an X Premium feature that can be created the same way a regular post would be
Select the post compose icon
You can include photos, a GIF, or a video (and up to 4 total media items, e.g. 2 photos, 1 GIF, and 1 video) in your post.
Compose your message. When you reach 280 characters, the word count will switch from tracking your progress around the perimeter of the circle icon to filling it
Once you’ve finished writing (up to 4,000 characters), select post.
Post source labels help you better understand how a post was posted. This additional information provides context about the post and its author. If you don’t recognize the source, you may want to learn more to determine how much you trust the content.
Click on a post to go to the post details page.
At the bottom of the post, you’ll see the label for the source of the account’s post. For example, X for iPhone, X for Android, or X for Web.
posts containing the X for Advertisers label indicate they are created through the X Ads Composer and not whether they are paid content or not. Paid content contains a Promoted badge across all ad formats.
In some cases you may see a third-party client name, which indicates the post came from a non-X application. Authors sometimes use third-party client applications to manage their posts, manage marketing campaigns, measure advertising performance, provide customer support, and to target certain groups of people to advertise to. Third-party clients are software tools used by authors and therefore are not affiliated with, nor do they reflect the views of, the post content. Posts and campaigns can be directly created by humans or, in some circumstances, automated by an application. Visit our partners page for a list of common third-party sources.
