Soon You Can Tweet with 280 Characters, Says Twitter

In a bid to increase the user engagement, Twitter would soon make its 280-character tweet a reality.

Twitter, in a briefing, said that the company tested 280-character tweets in September and found that users spent less time editing their tweets and were less likely to abandon them.

Twitter further said that the users, who tweet in languages including Japanese, Korean and Chinese and don’t face cramming issues, will continue to have a limit of 140 characters.

The company however didn’t frame up a timeline when the 280 character tweets would go live for the users.
