This is another experiment of mine. I’m testing Revue by Twitter, a new newsletter building tool. Think of this newsletter as a review of Revue. Sort of.
I like what I’m seeing. Compared to Substack (you know that I’m on Substack
, right?), Revue’s editor is impressive and allows for much more content types to be included within a newsletter. Content is added from a toolbar on the right of the editor. The more sources we configure in Revue, the more content can be brought in to build newsletters. Creating a newsletter is like putting items on a canvas.
The following few items come from different sources: my many blogs (via RSS), my Pocket account (Natively) and Substack (via RSS). I wish I could add from Readwise, though.
Revue is using the block metaphor for editing content. Substack is more like a text editor.
A Twitter user who has a newsletter on Revue gets a special tile on his or her Twitter profile. As of this writing, I didn’t have mine, I guess this is because I didn’t have any publications yet.
