More than a decade after it was launched, micro-blogging site Twitter has doubled the length restriction of tweets -- from 140 characters to 280. The San Francisco headquartered social networking site, however, extended this feature to a small subset of users and applies to languages other than Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.
The company said that the new tweet limit is currently being tested out. It has not disclosed when it will be rolling out the feature for all of its users.
