Essentially, Twitter seemed to be saying, even if you want to stick to 140 characters in your tweets, we're going to make it hard for you.
The Yankees aren't unsure about how to use the extra space. Not everyone was happy about it (including a certain author of a best-selling series about wizards) but as some people have emphasized, you don't need to use all 280 characters if you don't want to.
Twitter stated in the original announcement that the new character limit stemmed from tweeters being unequally penalized depending on which language he or she tweeted.
The change will come as great news to anyone with a lengthy name who has had to bash and hack at their display name order to make it fit into the previously highly-restrictive limit.
Recall that the company in September, launched a test that expanded the signatory character limit. Now it is doubling the number of characters you can use in yourdisplay name, which will potentially open things up to further abuse and, therefore, more criticism.
Well now anyone and everyone can have a go at a 280-charactered tweet. Meant to also allow users more freedom of expression, the change wasn't exactly well-received by most users. Only 1% of tweets hit the 280 character limit during Twitter's testing period. This time though, it was just a tweet saying you can now add your middle name or a few emojis to yourdisplay name.
