Twitter upgrades the character limit to 280 for all users

twitter 280 characters now available for all users

The 140-character limit of Twitter is part of history now, because the microblogging site is officially updating the character limit to 280 characters for all the users around the world. It means that you can tweet in 280 characters.

However, the character limit for languages such as Korean, Japanese and Chinese would still be 140 characters. To support this barrier on these Asian languages, the company is stating that the average length of a Japanese tweet is 15 characters and therefore the 140 character limit would still make everyone happy.

The Twitter is known as a platform for expressing thoughts in a few words. That’s why although the character limit has got an upgrade to 280 characters, the company still believes that way of expressing in a short way can still be retained.

Twitter said:

More space makes it easier for people to fit thoughts in a tweet, so they could say what they want to say, and send Tweets faster than before.

But there are views against this move from across the world, because all these days the users could view the tweets in limited characters with an authentic link and now everyone will have to view slightly longer paragraphs.

We at TechDotMatrix welcome this move by the Twitter. However, let us know your views in the comments section below.
