Ever since Elon Musk took over, Twitter has been under an endless slew of updates.
The latest addition to the table offers a character limit 14 times larger than before. Character count has long been a gripe for tweeters, but bumping up by 1,420% seems like an overkill.
This marks the second tweak in Twitter history, a clear attempt at attracting more revenue into its paid tier; yet an unpleasant departure from Twitter’s micro-blogging incarnating persona.
As mentioned, the threshold extension has been rolled out to Blue subscribers only, currently limited to the United States. And there’s an extra limitation, besides the price tag; such lengthy tweets can’t be saved as drafts or scheduled for later purposes.
We can’t but wonder though, what can one do with 4,000 characters?
