USA Today reports:
Our commander-in-chief is going to have a lot more room to tweet. Twitter announced Tuesday it will roll out a 280-character limit for single tweets after testing the option among a handful of users since September.
The new character limit applies to languages where cramming is an issue, such as English. The change won’t apply to Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages because the density of their writing allows users to say more with fewer characters.
The move will give President Donald Trump, Twitter’s highest profile user, more room to discuss potential policies and take aim at critics.
