Twitter’s 140 personality restrict could also be coming to finish and I’m now not positive how I think about it.

The corporate made the announcement lately by the use of weblog publish, the place they laid out reasoning for a conceivable growth from 140 characters in a Tweet to 280 characters. Why would they do this, you ask? As a result of their information presentations that as folks run into the 140 personality restrict and will’t put in combination a message they’re pleased with, they simply don’t tweet. If truth be told, they to find that to be an issue in languages like English, which by way of all method is a troublesome one to correctly put across a 140 personality message in as you rant out of your keyboard warrior sports activities podium. Languages like Jap run into this factor some distance much less. Twitter’s information presentations that 0.4% of Tweets despatched in Jap arrive on the 140 personality restrict, while 9% of the ones in English do. That’s a reasonably large distinction.

To start out, the corporate says it’s going to make bigger a small staff of customers to a 280 personality restrict in Tweets. They’ll appear to be the picture beneath.
