Longer tweets are coming soon to Twitter.
Twitter Considering 10,000-Character Limit for Tweets
Twitter is building a new feature that will enable users to tweet things longer as opposed to traditional 140-character limit, and the corporation is targeting a launch date toward the tip of Q1, according to multiple sources informed about the company’s plans. Twitter is considering a 10,000 figure limit, according to these places. That’s the same character limit the corporation uses for its Direct Announcements product, so it isn’t a complete surprise.
There is no official launch date set in stone, these sources say. It’s also possible the type limit could fluctuate before it rolls out a final product, which people inside Twitter reference as “Beyond 140.
Twitter is testing a version of the product in which tweets appear a similar way they do now, showing just 140 characters, with some kind of call to action that there is certainly more content you can’t observe. Clicking on the tweets would then expand these to reveal more content. The point of this should be to keep the same look for your timeline, although this design just isn’t necessarily final, sources say.
The style aspect is key. Making Tweets bigger by including more content or bigger photographs has diminished user engagement during the past, according to one source. That produces sense. If tweets take quite a long time to consume or take up more space on the screen, it’s likely that you’ll see (and engage with) fewer ones. So Twitter is trying to incorporate more content without disrupting and the choice of currently scroll through your schedule.
