Twitter, world renowned social media platform, has accepted that its 140-characters limits is causing frustration amongst users and thus has begun testing extending that limit to 280-characters now.
San Francisco-based Twitter said on Tuesday that the new limit, a major shift for the messaging platform known for its 140-character tweets, aims to address “a major cause of frustration” for many users.
Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey fired off what may be one of the first expanded tweets.
“This is a small change, but a big move for us,” he wrote, calling the previous limit was an “arbitrary choice”.
“Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet,” Dorsey added.
