Twitter announced on Tuesday 7 November 2017 that the platform would double the limit for tweets from 140 to 280 characters. At the same time, the 140-character limit did force you to be concise and witty, and there was a certain value to that.

Yesterday, Twitter made a decision to give their users more room to manoeuvre after a successful pilot programme that doubled the original 140 character limit.

"I will NEVER use 280 characters nor will I favorite or retweet a tweet with them".

In a support article published by the company, for changing display name, Twitter users can head to Profile settings on Twitter app (Android or iOS) or open Twitter.com and choose Edit Profile. Previously, you could only use up to 20 characters, which, admittedly, is quite short for some names.

But with the expanded character count, this problem was massively reduced - that number dropped to only 1% of Tweets running up against the limit.

The display name is different from your username.

Twitter itself admitted that those 280 characters weren't exactly always used up even by its beta testers, but it strangely pushed through with it anyway.

According to Twitter's data, just 5% of tweets were longer than 140 characters, and 2% were over 190 characters.

Proverbs, adages and insults are freely thrown on Twitter Nigeria and with more characters, expect to see epistles, statements and toxic stories that really touch.
