After teasing and testing it, Twitter has announced that it is now doubling the character to limit. The tweets now fit up to 280 characters. Up from its current 140 limit. The new character limit will be available to users in all 40 languages the platform supports.
Who’s left out?: The new character length won’t apply to Japanese, Korean or Chinese-language tweets. Those languages can convey twice as much information in less space, so tweets will remain at 140 characters
When will it be available?: Twitter stated that everyone should begin seeing the new length by Tuesday evening.
