The micro-blogging website Twitter is famous for its 140 characters limit, to express our thoughts and opinion. However, now the company is testing a new feature which will double the characters limit.
According to the latest blog of Twitter, the company testing 280 characters limit (doubled the tweet’s characters limit) and the testing is happening between a small number of users.
But, what’s the reason behind the increasing of the character limit? Twitter says that the tweet limit was expanded to bring equity to languages that use more space to convey a phrase or a word. According to a research made by Twitter, the character limit is a major cause of frustration for people tweeting in English. Users tweeting in English language frequently hit the 140-character limit while the users tweeting in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean can convey more in fewer characters.
So, what’s your thoughts about this???
