Twitter has announced that they will upgrade the character amount for tweets.

Twitter has announced that they will double the character count from 140 characters to 280. This is a small change but a huge upgrade to the social media outlet.

It was always frustrating trying to voice an opinion within the 140 character limit. To double the amount can be good or bad for social media.

Twitter originally chose 140 because cell phone texts hit a limit of 120 and then would send a second text with the rest of the message. Now that texts are really any size needed, Twitter decided that it was time to upgrade their character count. Users will now have double the space to voice their opinion, break news or even vent.
