Twitter is testing the waters on expanding their character limit. Since Twitter was born, tweets were limited to 140 characters, but now that is in the past. A few select users got early access to Twitter’s new, longer and maybe not so improved 280 character limit tweets.
If you’re not one of the lucky celebrities who can now tweet novels don’t worry! You can still finesse your way to longer tweets thanks to this one hack. Juliette Pretot is a service designer and web developer and posted a code that will allow users to access 280 character tweets.
It’s a three step process that is super simple!
