Twitter doubles character limit to 280 for (nearly) everyone

Twitter says it's ending its iconic 140-character limit - and giving almost everyone 280 characters.

As Twitter explained in a blog post last month, some languages are more susceptible to cramming than others. By removing that hurdle, Twitter is hoping people will tweet more, drawing more users in.

The expansion to 280-character tweets will be extended to all users except those tweeting in Chinese, Japanese and Korean, who will still have the original limit. "Maybe I could get used to this extra characters thing", she wrote, then said, "I'm awful at fighting the system".

Twitter has changed substantially today (November 8) - and has received a mixed reaction.

Getting a thought out in 140 characters or less is a lost art now on Twitter.

As Twitter tries to ramp up user growth so it can reaccelerate revenue growth, investors should look for more rapid and informed product execution. "As a result, we are now redesigning our application to make it easier to use".
