New York [U.S.A.], September 27 (ANI): The micro-blogging site, Twitter, is changing its character limit, for the first time in history.
The service announced on Tuesday that it is set to double its character count for tweets -- from 140 characters to 280 characters -- albeit, for some of its users. The test group will include those who tweet in certain languages, including English, Spanish and Portuguese.
"Our research shows us that the character limit is a major cause of frustration for people Tweeting in English, but it is not for those Tweeting in Japanese," the post read.
Only a "small group of people" will get the new limit before Twitter launches it to everyone. "But all users will be able to see longer tweets," it added. (ANI)
