Twitter 280 characters limit – Giving you more characters to express yourself


Twitter just doubled the character limit for tweets to 280

Tweets twice as big roll out in a global test

Twitter testing to increase character limit of 280 characters will be rolled out to select users first, said Twitter. Some user already got but more will be probably be getting in the coming days.

We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we’re doing something new: we’re going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean).

280 characters may be new, it may be different, but it will open a whole new layer of communication between each other, while maintaining constraint and brevity. I’m excited to see the outcome, and proud of Twitter for continuing to innovate and push features.
