After releasing the option of posting longer tweets, Twitter is now bringing the ability to post even longer tweets, up to 10,000 characters, to be exact.
The first time Twitter introduced longer tweets was only a month ago, which enabled Twitter Blue subscribers to post tweets containing up to 4,000 characters. For some reason, it seems that CEO Elon Musk wasn’t satisfied with that limit, hence the decision to further extend it, which is now going to result in super long tweets.
It is speculated that this is Twitter’s strategy of increasing user interaction with content on the platform and making revenue out of ad placements in between the long-form tweets. Additionally, creators on Twitter can also benefit from longer tweets, as they wouldn’t need to redirect their audiences to other platforms to engage with their content.
However, since Twitter is known for its short, up-to-the-minute updates on ongoing and latest events and trends, long-form content could likely change the platform’s purpose and direction. Yet, because users have always been excited about being able to add more text to their tweets, it is possible that the addition eventually ends up in Twitter’s favour.
