Twitter maintains current limit for the number of characters in tweets




witter CEO Jack Dorsey has announced that no new limit will be the number of characters in tweets. Earlier this year there were rumors that the platform was planning such a change, the number of characters but now stays at 140.

Twitter logo new fpa Variety reports which Dorsey the rumors disproved in an interview with the US television network NBC to mark the tenth anniversary of Twitter. He explained that the current limit ‘is good boundary “one that makes it possible to send brief messages. Thus he goes against his own tweet in January, in which he questioned the limit of 140 characters.

Maybe this was why were rumors that the end of this month would be possible to set up tweets with up to ten thousand characters. It was not inconceivable that Twitter would make this decision, because the company already the character limit from personal messages deleted . Dorsey gave no further explanation of the decision to make no change.

It therefore remains unclear what he meant by his tweet, in January. There he was, among other things the ability to create text searchable on Twitter and he also mentioned highlighting text passages. One of the most recent modifications of the service is at the top of the display of the ‘best’ tweets, depending on the choice of the user.
