Twitter Tweaks Will Make 140-Character Limit Roomier

MAY 24, 2016

Twitter Inc. is sticking with its signature 140-character limit, but the allotment will start to feel a bit longer soon.

The company on Tuesday announced several tweaks to the format of its posts to make its social-media platform simpler and more appealing. Among them, it will no longer count usernames sent in reply tweets and media attachments in the 140-character limit, giving users the full space to express themselves.

The changes, to be rolled out gradually over the coming months, are part of efforts by Chief Executive Jack Dorsey to broaden Twitter’s appeal at a time when the growth of its user base has stalled. The company is trying to tackle long-standing and often arcane rules and procedures that some users complained stunted conversation and other activity on the platform.
