Twitter tests to double its character limit to 280 characters

Twitter, one of the most popular social media platforms, announced that it is testing to double the 140 character limit in every tweet.

In the tests, small groups of users, randomly selected around the world, will be able to “tune” up to 280 characters in different languages.

However, according to the New York Times and Reuters, it has not been clarified yet how many weeks these tests will last and whether the new character limit will apply to all users without exception in the future.

According to officials, twitter’s goal is to make it easier for users to express their messages so they can send more messages, as well as encourage new users to use it.
