Twitter Keeping The 140 Characters Limit, Says Jack Dorsey

Twitter Inc’s 140-character tweets are here to stay, chief executive Jack Dorsey said on Friday, ending speculation that the microblogging site might abandon one of its trademark features for a 10,000-character limit.

“It’s staying. It’s a good constraint for us and it allows for of-the-moment brevity,” Dorsey said on NBC’s Today Show.

In January, technology news website Re/code reported that Twitter was building a new feature that would allow tweets as long as 10,000 characters. Dorsey had tweeted the day of the report that the company had seen more screenshots of text posted as a way to get around the 140-character limit. However, in August last year, Twitter increased the limit for Direct Messages from 140 characters to 10,000 characters.
