Twitter doubles tweet length for some users to 280 characters
If brevity is the soul of wit, Twitter is about to get a lot less clever. For the first time in history, Twitter is changing its character limit. The service announced on Tuesday it is doubling its character count for tweets -- from 140 characters to 280 characters -- for some of its users. The test group will include those who tweet in certain languages, including English, Spanish and Portuguese.
