Re/code is quoting multiple sources that Twitter is building a new product that will allow users to share tweets that are longer than the company’s 140-character limit. It’s unclear what the product will look like, but sources say it would enable Twitter users to publish long-form content to the service.
The 140-character limit has been one of Twitter’s trademark features since day one. It has long been scrutinized by those outside the company, and many have argued over the years that Twitter should expand it. The company finding hard to connect to new users and are exploring new ideas.
This new product can potentially help freelance writers and bloggers. We may even see a big change in the way news is reported. Now most people try to use images to post big news stories on twitter, which can be got ridden of.
On a side note, RGV can now rant all he wants with a single tweet.
