Moscow: Twitter intends to increase the maximum allowed number of characters in posts from 280 to 4,000, US billionaire entrepreneur and newly minted Twitter owner Elon Musk said on Sunday.
On November 6, Musk said that the social media platform would soon allow users to create long posts. “Yes,” Musk said when asked by a user if Twitter was going to increase the number of characters to 4,000.
Right now, Twitter users’ are limited to 280 characters per post, so they have to attach photos with a large amount of text to their publications.
