After successfully testing, the micro-blogging website Twitter officially doubles its character limit to 280. Back in September, the social networking website started testing the new character limit. And from now onwards, users can share their views and thoughts from 140 characters to 280 characters.
Twitter is rolling out the new character limit worldwide, but the company is keeping out few countries such as China, Japan and Korea will still continue the 140 character limit. The company says that with the increase of characters users can easily express their thoughts.
But I think the new the new character limit will harm fast moving, real time nature of the website, as with the more characters people will start writing paragraphs and increase the length of their tweets unnecessarily. Which will definitely, affect the uniqueness of Twitter.
