Sometime early 2017, there were plans by Twitter to increase the number of tweet character. I’m actually glad to tell you guys that its now official and everyone can now tweet up to 280 characters. This means that they have doubled it from 140 tweet characters to 280 tweet characters.
This update is not available for all languages as some languages like Japanese, Chinese and Korean will continue to have a 140 character limit. The reason for this is because they take fewer characters to say something that would take many more to express in other languages.
For you gurus to enjoy this new feature on your various devices, all you have to do is for you to just simply update your Twitter app.
