Twitter Planning To Increase Character Limit From 140 To 10,000

According to several reports from Recode and WSJ, Twitter as we know it will soon be turned to Facebook, possibly by March! How? They want to extend the tweet limit from 140 characters to 10,000 characters – that is like turning Twitter to a blog.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey tweeted a text screenshot that explained the reason behind the change.
Also, according to The Guardian via Recode, this news has affected Twitter shares, which plummeted to 2.86%.


140 characters

In my opinion, the whole advantage to Twitter is its brevity, 280 characters max would be ok, but 10,000 come on! Just imagine if this happens, people will want to post a thesis on the negative effect of global warming on twitter. 

You can also trust some twitter users to pin this tweet: “Post a 10K character tweet and you will immediately be unfollowed”

    Oh no pls! All those facebookers will now enter twitter & ruin it with their meaningless & “type amen or” posts.
    280 max is also too much for me, 200 max character is ok.

    i think the 140 was okay, after all the whole essence of calling it tweets was the character limit, 10k is just totally OFF though, am very sure # Team type amen on Facebook will love this, * if you agree type Amen 😀
