Twitter's 10,000-character limit bump makes business sense
"Twitter is reportedly preparing to raise the number of characters allowed in a tweet from 140 to 10,000. But the company may be planning more of an interface change than a text field expansion.
According to Re/code, Twitter intends to launch its extended tweet format during the first quarter of 2016. The tech publication initially reported in September last year that Twitter was building a new product that would allow users to share tweets that are longer than the company's 140-character limit.
Twitter declined to comment. But CEO Jack Dorsey last week addressed the report indirectly through a Twitter post that consists of a screenshot of text, which has become a common way to sidestep the service's 140-character limit.”
