At contemporary there is no room for twitter to be called non user friendly. But as we know everything has its pros and cons and the biggest issue with twitter is that it limit its tweet to 140 characters. But wait there is a big blow coming and that blow is that twitter is now trailing to increase its tweet limit to 240 characters. That is just double the present limit.
The firm said in a blog post that the current limit of 140 characters is a major cause of frustration for many twitter users as many of them try to cram their emotions in 140 characters and its a quite tough virtual workout.
Ms Rosen said the longer character limit was being tested in all languages bar Japanese, Chinese and Korean which she said could convey more information in a single character.
“We understand since many of you have been Tweeting for years, there may be an emotional attachment to 140 characters – we felt it, too.
“But we tried this, saw the power of what it will do, and fell in love with this new, still brief, constraint,” she said.
But Twitter said the change could mean people tweet more frequently.
“When people don’t have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters and actually have some to spare, we see more people tweeting,” Ms Rosen said.
But at last not the least its a huge improvement for twitter as it gives free room for those who wants to cram their emotions to tweets. From romantic couples to great scientists, from doctors to engineers everyone of us have emotions and feelings which we want to share with whole world and twitter is one of the largest platform at present for this fabulous villa of sharing our emotions and feelings a sharp sword we can say for general folks.
