There’s a wide range of techniques that can be used to do steganography. Most available online tools available at this time focus on image-based steganography but you can hide information in virtually anything anywhere, not just images.
There’s almost an infinite amount of possible encoder and decoder you could build to do steganography on plain text, this page is just one of such example. The technique that’s used here is based on Homoglyphs which according to this source was used by Google to protect their internal communication but some other technques could be found in the literature like whitespace watermarking leveraging either the zero-width space or the various whitespace characters available from Unicode.
If you’re considering one of the other, each technique got pro/cons depending on what you’re trying to do. One of the cool things with Homoglyphs which is used here is its resistance to copy and paste from and to any medium but also that it enables the addition of new metadata for each copy without destroying the existing metadata.
