Twitter will soon expand to 10,000 character long tweets: Musk


Twitter CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday said the micro-blogging platform will soon allow longer-form tweets up to 10,000 characters with simpler formatting tools. When one user posted, “Genius, @Twitter and @ElonMusk’s decision to allow longer content on Twitter is brilliant product design. There will be less clickbait type articles and people will stay on Twitter longer.”

Musk replied: “Increasing long form to 10k characters soon with simple formatting tools.” “And make it very easy for authors to charge a subscription fee for premium content.”
Musk also said earlier this month that the company would increase “longform tweets” to 10,000 characters.

Previously, tweets were limited to only 280 characters, which still applies to non-subscribers.
