Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is obviously one of the folks who gets to test drive the new limit.
Twitter has revealed plans to expand its iconic 140 character limit and double it to 280 characters. The company shared data that indicated 9% of all English language tweets ran right up to that 140-character limit, while only 0.4% of Japanese tweets hit that wall. The average Japanese Tweet is 15 characters long, while the English figure is 34. This suggests that users likely feel that they must edit their commentary or thoughts down in order to get their message across.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users aren't warming to the experiment.
Twitter has now recognized that and has begun testing a new 280 character limit within a small group, so you may eventually be able to tweet your hot takes with even more heat.
