Say good-bye to the 140–character constraint…
The world’s most popular micro blogging site Twitter is soon going to do away with its 140 characters cap limit. Users will now be able to compose longer tweets as reported by Re/code.
The move comes after its CEO Jack Dorsey hinted about expanding the word limit in his tweet:
Twitter is building a new feature that will allow users to tweet things longer than the traditional 140-character limit, and the company is targeting a launch date toward the end of Q1, according to multiple sources familiar with the company’s plans. Twitter is currently considering a 10,000 character limit, according to these sources. That’s the same character limit the company uses for its Direct Messages product, so it isn’t a complete surprise.
There is no official launch date set in stone, these sources say.
