Twitter plans to increase number of characters in tweets from 140 to 280



Twitter plans to increase the number of characters in tweets from 140 to 280 for the majority of users.

 
The new limit will not apply to tweets written in Japanese, Chinese and Korean which can convey more information in a single character.


The move follows a trial among a small group of users which started in September in response to criticism that it was not easy enough to tweet.


The change is part of Twitter's plan to attract new users and increase growth.
