Donald Trump fires off first tweets under new 280 character limit

11 November, 2017, 01:44 | Author: Miranda Cannon

The epd press agency, which reports on the behalf of the official Evangelical Church in Germany, sought out an "expert" to dispute the notion that anything of great written value would be found on Twitter at all - either briefly or at the full new length of 280 characters. As of yesterday, everyone has it. Throw more letters. It has just recently doubled the amount of characters you can type into a tweet, which isn't exactly doing it any favors. At the same time, the 140-character limit did force you to be concise and witty, and there was a certain value to that.

The Yankees aren't unsure about how to use the extra space. Previously, you could only use up to 20 characters, which, admittedly, is quite short for some names.

Twitter announced that they had begun testing the increase of limit across most languages in September 2017, then finally announced through their own platform that the change has been made permanent.

Germans have greeted the news that Twitter now permits 280-character missives with twice the tweeting.


Meanwhile, Twitter after expanding the limit said that it was done to address the cramming issue.

Celtic, for example, used their first 280-character tweet to re-emphasise their longstanding spell of dominance in Scottish football.

While Twitter's argument is quite valid, that feature would serve the same goal in Nigeria as individuals will have more characters with which they can express themselves - even if such expression is to pile insults on other Twitter users.
