Now You Can Share The Distance On 'Notes'
A new way to support us
I have started using Substack Notes, and who knows what will become of me?
“Notes is a new space on Substack for us to share links, short posts, quotes, photos, and more,” says the suggested text from Substack, which wants moe to say that “I plan to use it for things that don’t fit in the newsletter, like work-in-progress or quick questions.”
Hilarious, comrades! Everyone here knows that Substack is the enemy of Elon Musk and this is really a Twitter clone in the making. Why not use it that?
How to join (or: how to “app”)
Here are the easy-peasy directions from Substack Headquarters.
Head to substack.com/notes or find the “Notes” tab in the Substack app. As a subscriber to The Distance, you’ll automatically see my notes. Feel free to like, reply, or share them around!
What they are doing at Substack, one stage at a time, is a transformation of the reader app into a discovery engine that mimics Twitter. This does not mean we are leaving Twitter, or that we care who owns Twitter. We’re simply learning this new platform just like everybody else in hopes it will bring lots of new readers and subscribers to The Distance.
If you encounter any issues, you can always refer to the Notes FAQ for assistance. Don’t be a stranger!
The Distance is a reader-supported publication. Please like, share, subscribe, and consider a paid subscription to support our work
