Twitter Releases 280-Character Limit to the Public Will this make a difference in how you tweet?


Say hello to the future of tweeting.

What was first a “test” for a select group of users has now been released to everyone on Twitter. On Tuesday, the social media site rolled out its 280-character limit to help everyone “express themselves easily in a Tweet” without having to conform to a previous limit of 140-character limit.

According to a recent blog post, “9% of Tweets in English hit the character limit. This reflects the challenge of fitting a thought into a Tweet, often resulting in lots of time spent editing and even at times abandoning Tweets before sending. With the expanded character count, this problem was massively reduced – that number dropped to only 1% of Tweets running up against the limit.”

Twitter even came out with a graph to show this trend:

With the new update, here’s how some members of the Twitterverse have reacted to the change.
