Not Longer Microblogging?
Jack Dorsey Testing 280 characters
Years ago, Twitter opened itself up to the public.
The microblogging service, initially called Twttr, was born out of software engineering with a 140-character limit. While Donald Trump keeps tweeting, the service will probably make him a huge favor. Twitter’s founder, and a small percentage of users, are testing a new feature; 280-character tweets.
Will 280 characters make your Twitter user experience any better? Let’s put it this way, you will express yourself and better engage with others users. Here is an example of what to expect in the near future, providing the test is positive.
Can’t fit your Tweet into 140 characters? 🤔
We’re trying something new with a small group, and increasing the character limit to 280! Excited about the possibilities? Read our blog to find out how it all adds up. 👇https://t.co/C6hjsB9nbL
