When Twitter was first launched back in July 2006, users can only write a tweet with limit of 140 characters. It was increased to 280 characters in November 2017. With the new boss in charge, Twitter is planning to increase the limit again, maybe not for free.
When a Twitter user asked Elon Musk whether Twitter is considering to increase the character limit from 280 to 4,000, Musk just gave a one word reply.
Musk didn’t provide any other details besides confirming the fact that users can write more in a tweet, effectively eliminating the need to create threads.
Additionally, 9to5Mac reported that Twitter is relaunching Twitter Blue for USD 8 (RM35.50) per month or USD 11 (RM 48.80) if you subscribe through Apple’s App Store (due to App Store fees). Twitter Blue subscribers will get a blue checkmark, businesses will get a gold checkmark, while government officials and organisations will get a gray checkmark.
Other than that, subscribers can also post longer videos, upload 1080p videos and will see half the ads on Twitter. However, it’s uncertain whether the 4,000 character limit will be part of Twitter Blue benefits.
