Twitter’s 140-character max to stay – 23ABC News

Twitter, a popular social media platform that has struggled in recent months to gain new users, has opted to do away with plans to allow its users to write more than 140 characters in a single post.

Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey said on Friday during NBC’s Today Show that after testing expanded posts, Twitter will keep people within the 140 character confines.

In January, Twitter began looking into allowing users to post up to 10,000 characters. The move was seen by many to help revive Twitter after slumping numbers. Dorsey said that while Twitter is not expanding the number of characters people can use in a tweet, Twitter will continue to change.
