Twitter Character Limit to Increase to 10k

Yes, you read that correctly. Twitter may be increasing their character limit from 140 to… 10,000.

10,000.

Who thought this was a good idea? No idea. Maybe it’ll go the same way of the Facebook ‘dislike’ button. I guess we’ll see in time.

Re/Code reported that Twitter was building a system to extend the current 140 character limit.  10,000 is the exact character limit the company uses for its Direct Messenger, so it isn’t a total shocker.

At this time there is no launch date set in stone.
