Elon Musk confirms that Twitter is increasing character limit from 280 to 4,000
Twitter CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the micro-blogging platform will increase the tweet character limit from 280 to 4,000.
When a user asked Musk on Twitter whether “is it true that Twitter is set to increase the characters from 280 to 4000?", Musk replied, "Yes".
Several users expressed their thoughts on Musk's post.
While one user said, "It would be a big mistake. Twitter's purpose is to provide fast news. If this happens, a lot of real information is lost," another commented, "4000? That's an essay, not a tweet."
Twitter, meanwhile, on Sunday started to roll out 'Community Notes' to all users globally. According to the company, "Community Notes aim to create a better informed world by empowering people on Twitter to collaboratively add context to potentially misleading Tweets."
"Contributors can leave notes on any Tweet and if enough contributors from different points of view rate that note as helpful, the note will be publicly shown on a Tweet," it added.
On the other hand, Musk on Monday called all the bots on the micro-blogging platform to attack him.
He wrote, "Calling all bots & spams. Please attack me!"
