Twitter is known for its 140 character limit - yet some users find it challenging to cram all their thoughts into a Tweet.
Only a small percentage of Twitter users (a single digit percentage at first) will see the new 280 character limit over the next few weeks until the higher character limit is available to all users. Marketers would also be able to benefit from this feature by having more characters with which they can spread their message and through this, Twitter can also make a bit more cash. Tweets get right to the point with the information or thoughts that matters. "This is a small change but a big move for us", CEO Jack Dorsey wrote on Twitter referring to the announcement.
Twitter linked a blog along with the tweet that announced the testing of the new character limit.
Well, since the folks at Twitter want every person to easily express themselves on the social media platform, they are trying out a longer limit, 280 characters.
Chris Sacca, an early investor in Twitter, argued the company was "distracted monkeying around with character counts" while they have bigger issues to take care of, such as meddling tweets that appear to have been sent from Russian Federation.
The manager reported that 9% of tweets in English hit the 140 character roof while only 0.4% of tweets in Japanese reach that limit.
