Longer Tweets Coming On September 19
Around three-four months there were rumours that Twitter is going to increase its character limit from the 140 characters limit. And now the date has been confirmed. And the longer tweets are coming September 19.
This was a report came from The Verge saying Tweet giant Twitter will start updating to longer tweets from September 19 2016. But yes, the dates could be changed further.
Actually there is a reason behind this move of Twitter. This move was from Microblogging site which showed lower results of Active users. Other competitors like Snapchat or Instagram gave users an attractive design and fierce competition. Best review website Digit.in had an interview with the twitter executives. have a look at the video below.
This extra space in the tweet box was planned back in May 2016. As the longer tweets gives more complexity to user to tweet a longer tweet. Todd Sherman, Senior Product Manager at Twitter wrote in a blogpost, we are exploring many ways by which we can drag new users and the existing users don’t move to other competitors.
So hopefully we will get a longer tweet box in the twitter. And we can tweet longer tweet after September 19 2016 (as the provided date). We hope this date doesn’t change, but if it changes then we will update you in the fastest way possible.
