Twitter doubles the character limit from 140 to 280

Written by

Twitter has increased the character limit from 140 to 280 for tweets in all languages where “cramming was an issue”. Japanese, Chinese, and Korean languages will not receive the update as they can convey the same amount of information in lesser characters, Twitter said. This is the first time Twitter changed its character limit since it was launched in 2006. Really, the 280-character move is an acknowledgment that the tech world has come a long way in 11 years.
