There’s no doubt that the 140 character limit for Twitter posts has been its long established trademark ever since it first launched in 2007. However, when it comes to social media platforms, Facebook has been known to (every once in a while) apply a major adjustment or update to its platform – and it usually works and keeps its many users and social media marketers on their feet.
Now, it seems like Twitter might be turning to this same strategy and finally looking beyond 140. According to a recently published article by Re/code, this long-standing character limit might be expanding.
So what will this mean for digital marketers? And what is the reason behind Twitter’s need for change? If this change does happen, you’ll want to be prepared for it, and be ready to integrate this update into your social media marketing.
