This month twitter has given a good news to its users. Twitter will double its character limit. Now tweets character limit will increase from 140 to 280 characters.
This new update twitter announced it by tweeting on twitter handler with blog link. Currently Twitter is limited to 140 characters. Users have to cram their thoughts to tweet in just 140 characters limit but not anymore. The cofounder of twitter, Jack Dorsey tweeted about 280 characters limit of twitter and that its testing has begun. He also tweeted that users will soon be able to tweet within 280 characters limit.
This is a small change, but a big move for us. 140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit. Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet. And at the same time maintaining our brevity, speed, and essence! https://t.co/TuHj51MsTu
