You can now tweet with the 280 character limit on Twitter

After testing the feature last September, Twitter is making the 280 character limit official, meaning you can tweet with more than 140 characters.

Here’s Twitter’s official announcement;

Twitter is testing tweets with 280 characters

Twitter;

We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we’re doing something new: we’re going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean).

To some this could be a great improvement of the service but to many Twitter is killing the main feature that made it popular – forcing users to think within that 140 character limit.

I don’t mind the 140 character limit, I’d rather have them not include in the limit when tagging another twitter users or may be the first 3 hashtags.
