We're expanding the character limit! We want it to be easier and faster for everyone to express themselves.— Twitter (@Twitter) November 7, 2017
More characters. More expression. More of what's happening.https://t.co/wBpYdy1K40
It’s official… Twitter is increasing tweets from 140 characters to 280.
Twitter announced Tuesday it will roll out a 280-character limit for single tweets after testing the option among a handful of users since September.
The company said when it tested the larger character limit, it noticed a drop in the number of tweets running against the maximum count.
Wow this tweet is gonna be really long I really like this I can say really without cutting it out now. I can use punctuation if I feel like it!!! I don't have to spend 5 minutes figuring out which words to take out, I can use them all hahahahahahahaha epic wow it's still going 😃— Ansel Elgort (@AnselElgort) November 8, 2017
I will NEVER use 280 characters nor will I favorite or retweet a tweet with them. THIS IS MY FIGHT SONG— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 8, 2017
We all have 280 characters? Well, as Shakespeare wrote, “Brevity is the soul of wit. The soul of wit is what brevity is. Brevity? Soul of wit? They're the same thing. Like if you had brevity in one hand and the soul of wit in the other, you’d be hard pressed to tell them apart.”— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) November 8, 2017
