The Twitter social network announced its intention to increase the limit of characters in messages in two times – from 140 to 280 characters, according to a statement published on the company’s blog.
Specialists note that many users who write in English are experiencing difficulties because of the limit and can not express their thoughts in one message. At the moment, a new feature is available to a small group of users. When the changes take effect for the whole social network, it is not specified.
The company added that many users can experience emotional attachment to 140 characters, but experts believe that increasing the limit will benefit the social network.
The message also emphasizes that the changes will not affect Korean, Chinese and Japanese, as they allow more information to be contained in one symbol.
