Now You Can Tweet with 280 Characters on Twitter

We all know that twitter doesn’t allow more than 140 words to express our thoughts on its very popular platform. But not anymore, Twitter has just decided to roll out a new update by giving and allowing you to use more characters in your tweets so that, you can express your thoughts in a more better way. Now you can use up to 280 characters instead of using only 140 characters in your tweets.

Tweet with More Than 140 Words on Twitter

However, you still might not be able to write up to 280 characters because this feature will only be available for a small group of people as of now but soon, this feature will be rolled out to everyone. According to twitter official blog post, people who write their tweets in English quickly run into the 140 character limit and the have to edit their Tweet several times to fit into the 140 words limit.

Twitter further added that most Japanese Tweets are 15 characters while most English Tweets are 34. Tweets sent in Japanese have 140 characters (only 0.4%). But in English, a much higher percentage of Tweets have 140 characters (9%).


This is because Twitter has decided not to roll out this feature to countries including Japan, China, and Korea. This is because users tweeting in these languages hardy reach the limit of 140 characters.

”We understand since many of you have been Tweeting for years, there may be an emotional attachment to 140 characters – we felt it, too. But we tried this, saw the power of what it will do, and fell in love with this new, still brief, constraint. We are excited to share this today, and we will keep you posted about what we see and what comes next”.
