Twitter Limit 140 to 280 Characters

In order to help one of the social media sites users to “easily express themselves”, Twitter has been giving it a try by extending its characters.

This extension is valid for a valid small group of Twitter users.

In a blog post, the firm mentioned that the current limit was “a major cause of frustration” for some users.

The growth of the firm has been slowed down, thus they decided to double characters to widen its appeal and attract new users.

Twitter product manager Aliza Rosen wrote, “Trying to cram your thoughts into a Tweet – we’ve all been there, and it’s a pain”.

Ms. Rosen said the longer character limit was being tested in all languages bar Japanese, Chinese and Korean which she said could convey more information in a single character.

she said, “We understand since many of you have been Tweeting for years, there may be an emotional attachment to 140 characters – we felt it, too.

But we tried this, saw the power of what it will do, and fell in love with this new, still brief, constraint”.
