Twitter increases tweet character limit from 140 to 280 but users need more push on the limit

by Samuel OnyikeSeptember 27, 2017

Twitter has decided to try something new and i saw it coming. The character limit in Twitter has been increased from 140 to 280, and i wonder why it took twitter so long to realize that was their downside. The 140 character limit was seamlessly cool for Asian users that could say a lot in just few stroke of character, but for the English users, you are forced to squeeze a book into one line.

The increment in character is not that bad  but if their could be no limit to what users can type, i think it will give twitter an edge. 280 character in my best opinion is not enough, if relatively has no limit to what users can type, then twitter should follow suite and the world will understand and embrace it.

The character upgrade is currently available to a feew but giving it a couple of days, it will spread worldwide. Tell me your take on the character limit.
