Revue being phased out by Twitter

If you're like me, you may have jumped on the let me integrate Revue with my Twitter to better surface my newsletter train.

Using Revue has helped increase my readership, but unfortunately it looks they are phasing it out at the end of the year, so I started exporting my subscribers yesterday.

I decided to go back to buttondown.email which is what I was using before I was trying out Substack, then Revue.

If you're currently using Revue, I advise to do the same. If you do, where do you plan to move your newsletter to? If you're not sure where, there are a bunch of great suggestions in this thread.

Damn, I've been planning to move my newsletter to Revue for almost a year now. Guess it's one of these times when procrastinating is actually beneficial.

Really sad about this (and that Twitter Notes, the merger of Revue into Twitter core, is now presumably not going to happen - we had some very cool plans around longform content on Twitter, but that was in the old times…). Good reminder that I’ll need to rethink my newsletter options.

Whelp! I was seriously considering coming back to Revue, as I saw they added a bunch of new editing features. Hearing this now, I'm glad I stayed put where I am!

Thanks for the info, @nickytonline!

Damn, I have some subscribers on Revue I need to send out a newsletter. I'll encourage them to migrate. Hadn't even occurred to me.
