Twitter decided to double the maximum length of messages, from 140 to 280 characters, the US company said.
The article is a mini-revolution for the social network, which conducted testing in September among its users.
– Our goal is to do this, while at the same time guarantee the speed and short content that are the embodiment of Twitter.
After the test results, we are pleased to announce that we have achieved the goal and will make changes in all languages, where the limit of 140 characters makes it difficult for the users to write the company on its Twitter account.
The continuation of the tweets will only apply to messages in Latin letters, the US company notes, as the 140-character limit is likely to be a problem primarily for users who write in English, Spanish, Portuguese or French, unlike those who write in Korean, Japanese or Chinese.
