‘Twitter's 140-character limit to stay’

If you thought you will be able to communicate more to other twitter accounts soon soon, hold on.

 
According to the social network site, there is still time for you to tweet in 10,000 characters and its original 140-character limit is here to stay.
 
Appearing on a TV channel, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said 140-character limit is "a beautiful constraint" and that Twitter "will never lose that feeling".
 
"It's staying. It's a good limitation for us, and it allows for of-the-moment brevity... We're changing a lot. We're always going to make Twitter better," he was quoted as saying in a Tech Crunch report on Saturday.
 
In January, media reports had said Twitter is building a new feature which  will allow users to tweet longer than its traditional 140-character limit.
 
Company is currently considering a 10,000-character limit, a report said, adding that Twitter may launch this feature toward the end of the first quarter.
 
This is the character limit the company uses for its Direct Messages product.
 
According to the report, it is also possible that 10,000-character feature may change before it is finally rolled out.
