Media: Twitter is planning to abandon the limitation of 140 characters


Reporters learned that the leadership of the microblogging service Twitter is preparing a new service that will allow users to publish posts without worrying about the character limit.

MOSCOW — Sep 30,. Twitter creates a new product that will allow you to publish tweets without the limitations of 140 characters. It is reported by a news site in the field of information technology Re/code with reference to several sources within the company.

It is unknown how the new system will service, but the sources claim that users will be able to publish in the social network. Also the owners of the company discuss how Twitter should count characters in the message, and whether to exclude links, and images from the hard part. In mid-August, Twitter has removed restrictions on the number of characters in personal messages.

Journalists associate “relief” with the desire of the interim CEO Jack Dorsey to expand its customer base, which has now grown to half a billion registered accounts and 140 million active users.

Dorsey said earlier that Twitter is hard to use, the service is stagnating and needs to grow, attracting a wider audience.

Limit the number of characters is Twitter’s trademark, since entering the market in 2006.
