Twitter has acquired Dutch email newsletter startup, Revue, a service that makes it free and easy for anyone to start and publish editorial newsletters.
The acquisition was announced by Twitter in a blog post.
Revue has customers including Vox Media, Chicago Sun-Times, the Markup and competes with services like Substack.
Twitter has announced that it is making Revue’s Pro features free for all accounts and lowering the paid newsletter fee to 5%, a competitive rate that lets writers keep more of the revenue generated from subscriptions.
Twitter will continue to invest in Revue as a standalone service.
Financial details have not been disclosed.
