The social media company Twitter announced on Tuesday that more users of the service would have the count doubled to 280 characters for them to express themselves, up from the original 140.
Twitter.com now supports 280 characters and now a circle progress indicator shows how many characters remain, but it will turn into a number when 20 characters remain. SMS has largely become obsolete to Twitter users as smartphone technology has advanced.
User posting in languages including Japanese, Korean and Chinese, which do not face the issue of "cramming", will continue to have a limit of 140 characters, Twitter said.
"We saw when people needed to use more than 140 characters, they tweeted more easily and more often", Aliza Rosen, a company product manager, wrote in a blog.
"Historically, 9% of Tweets in English hit the character limit".
Say goodbye to 140 characters and the countdown that used to appear next to your working tweets, it's all about 280 characters and a slowly filling circle now.
Now the San Francisco tech firm is officially doubling the character limit of its tweets to 280 characters. This means people probably spent time editing down their tweets or not sending them out at all. In most cases, it doesn't seem like most people are actually increasing the length of their tweets; we have apparently been trained well.
Twitter's character limit was created so that tweets could fit into a single text message, back when many people were using texts to receive tweets.
Rosen pointed out that people who might be concerned their Twitter streams timeline would look drastically different needn't worry.
The reason this is important for Twitter is that by giving users a little bit more space to talk, they spend less time trying to condense their thoughts, and more time just, well, talking.
Users will see the change roll out over the next few days, Twitter said.
Only five percent of Tweets sent were longer than 140 characters and only two percent were over 190 characters.
