Hello, 280. Twitter is expanding tweets to 280 characters for nearly all users (the change won’t apply to Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages) after rolling it out to some accounts in September. The company said people tweeted “more easily and more often” with the extended count, but that it didn’t substantially change Twitter’s brief-and-breezy character: Only 1% of users with extra space actually hit the limit. It’s all part of the social network’s efforts to grow users and engagement. • Share your thoughts: #TwitterDoubled
I personally don’t mind it. I wouldn’t use it more or less than I do now. I simply connect my Facebook to Twitter and this would mean more of my post content would crossover to Twitter.
I would be curious to see if they gain more activity with this update. Based on the articles and comments from current users, I don’t think this update is a real game changer. It’s a great effort to be in the news for now.
