Twitter Considering 10,000 Character Limit for Tweets

According to the new report, Twitter is set to increase the tweet limit from 140 characters to 10,000 characters. Reported by Re/code, Twitter is working to launch a new feature this quarter where the character limit may be expanded to 10,000. 

Jack Dorsey, the company's co-founder, who returned as chief executive in October, in a series of tweets did not say whether Twitter would expand the limit. But he did call it "a beautiful constraint." He added that the company has seen more people sharing screenshots of text, which are a way to get around the 140-character limit. “We didn’t start Twitter with a 140 character restriction. We added that early on to fit into a single SMS message,” Dorsey wrote in the tweet. We’ve spent a lot of time observing what people are doing on Twitter, and we see them taking screenshots of text and tweeting it.We’re not going to be shy about building more utility and power into Twitter for people.”

If this comes true then it will be the biggest change made in Twitter. Twitter was all about those 140 characters. Personally I feel it was fun tweeting within the 140 character limits with the short cuts and hash tag, if you fall beyond the limit then you continue with the reply to your tweet. If you want to say more than 140 characters, start a blog! What do you all feel about this, Please tell us by commenting below.
