I’ve been using a twitter for about a year now and it’s such a wonderful social platform. Often time I just wanna tweet and during the process of trying to express my thoughts in a tweet, I end up running out of characters to tweet. With the 140 tweet character limit, I just couldn’t find a means to put all my thoughts to fit in.
The company announced they’re testing a 280 character limit amongst a small group whose languages is not Japanese, Korean or Chinese especially. The update may soon be available to every users soon if acknowledged.
A company spokesman 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.
This could just be another great update and I guess most users are going to like it, although many users already got used to the 140 character limit and I still wonder how they’re able to squeeze it all at 140, really.
What do you think about this update? Does increasing the tweet limit actually going to change the Twitter experience ? Tell us in the comments
