Twitter Upping 140-Limit To 10,000?


Twitter has made headlines this week, following news that the social media platform was upping its 140-character limit to 10,000.

Co-founder Jack Dorsey revealed the company's intentions in a tweet posted Tuesday, after Re/Code reported the news.

Dorsey didn't directly address the report, but made it clear that the 140-character limit isn't stuck in stone, making his point by posting a screenshot of a text consisting of 1,325 characters.

He also pointed out that many users already include screenshots of lengthy texts in their tweets. And, also indicated that Twitter is examining ways to give people more room to express themselves.

Twitter, Inc. declined to comment thus far.
