Twitter To Remove 140 Character Limit From Tweets
Twitter, the microblogging legend is reportedly working on removing its 140-character limit from tweets.
The company is designing a new product that will enable users to share tweets that are longer than 140 characters. The speculation reported via online technology portal Recode. Twitter is currently working on a new product that will let you share tweets that are longer than 140 characters, Recode reports.
Twitter has already made significant changes like removing character limit from direct messaging and changing the ‘favorite’ button for the users. The latest change would be one from the series of changes that the company has been testing in recent months.
A current Twitter employee reportedly told Recode:
“People have been very precious at Twitter about what Twitter can be and how much it can be evolved. Having Jack come in and say it’s okay makes all the difference in the world.”
Third party platforms like OneShot already offer users a way to tweet text and images using extended character limit. However, the extended character limit isn’t applicable for native tweets.
Twitter may stop counting user handles or links in the character count to free up some space and increase the characters. Any official announcement from Twitter over the feature is yet to come.
