Longer tweets are coming soon to Twitter.
Twitter is building a new feature that will allow users to tweet things longer than the traditional 140-character limit, and the company is targeting a launch date toward the end of Q1, according to multiple sources familiar with the company’s plans. Twitter is currently considering a 10,000 character limit, according to these sources. That’s the same character limit the company uses for its Direct Messages product, so it isn’t a complete surprise.
To be honest, that 140 character limit is what made Twitter special, I guess the company thinks that by increasing the character limit, this will solve their growth problem. I guess, it time to stop calling Twitter, a micro-blogging site.
