- The social media company announced Tuesday that it was testing tweets as long as 280 characters, double the previous amount of 140. However, the feature is only available to a select few at the moment, and is not available in Japanese, Chinese and Korean.
- “We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we’re doing something new: we’re going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean),” Twitter explained in a blog post.
- “Although we feel confident about our data and the positive impact this change will have, we want to try it out with a small group of people before we make a decision to launch to everyone.”
