How To Enable 280 Characters On Twitter

Twitter Increases Character Count to 280 characters

This 140-character limit, she says, is a cause of frustration for English users, but not Japanese users, because of the difference in language.

That's vital for the social media company, which has been under pressure from Wall Street to jump-start its user growth, which has stagnated globally at 328 million this year. He said in a statement that he realizes some users might have an "emotional attachment" to the 140 character limit, but said that extending it was the right thing to do. A higher character limit loosens the creative restraints on users and gives them the opportunity to be more expressive. Twitter yesterday posted a detailed blog post explainer which talks about Twitter increasing the character limit, twice as more.

Twitter responded with a pledge to review its policy while noting that "newsworthiness" and public interest must be considered in deciding whether to take down a tweet. "And at the same time maintaining our brevity, speed, and essence!" said Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey in a tweet, among the first in the 280 format.

After much speculation and hesitation, Twitter is now testing an increase to its renowned 140-character limit.

Kylie Jenner returns to Instagram after pregnancy reports
However, several fans have stated that after zooming in on Jenner's photo evidence of a baby bump is clearly visible. He posted a video to YouTube in which he said: 'Let's be real, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are not going to last.

The character expansion also is not available in Japanese, Chinese and Korean. But we can expect the rollout to be cross-platform, including expanded tweet support on Android and iOS apps. A tweet in Japanese can express a lot more in just 140 characters than a 140 character tweet in English. In a blog post explaining the change, Twitter didn't say when the new feature would carry over to everyone.

Twitter's new idea might just be the answer to your wishes. "We're hoping fewer tweets run into the character limit, which should make it easier for everyone to tweet".

Depending on how the increase is implemented, Twitter risks harming the relationship it has with is base users, Kurtzman said.

By moving to 280 characters, Twitter appears to be striking a balance in giving users more room to express themselves without sacrificing the short bursts of communication that have made its service an instrumental platform for disseminating breaking news. The problem it faces is that it doesn't want to alienate existing users who like the 140-character limit.
