Twitter to increase post characters to 4000
Twitter owner Elon Musk has affirmed that the microblogging site will increase post characters from 280 to 4,000 as part of new changes to be implemented soon.
Mr Musk responded in the affirmative when a Twitter user, @AllanObare4, asked him if rumours of post characters being increased to 4,000 were true.
Before now, users had learnt to express themselves in concise sentences of 280 limit on characters, which was one of Twitter’s major distinguishing appeals from other social networks. Tweets were easy to read because of their brevity.
The last time the microblogging site increased its character limit was in 2017, from 140 to 280.
This comes just as the site is set to relaunch the Twitter Blue service where subscribers would pay a mandatory monthly fee of eight dollars for the blue tick, which guarantees editing of tweets.
However, Apple users would spend $11, three dollars more than the average price, to make up for the 30 per cent commission fee Apple levies on in-app purchases.
Perks of the blue-tick subscribers include fewer ads, higher quality videos, ability to post and view longer videos and visibility would also be given to their tweets over other users.
