Twitter says: your tweets could be longer than 140 characters soon

Recode reported this week that Twitter was tinkering around with the idea of expanding its 140 character limit to a number a bit higher….10,000 characters.

There’s been a lot of uncertainty as to what this could mean to the Twitter empire, Twitter’s share price even took a dip at the news, but is this really a bad thing?

Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey doesn’t seem to think so as he Tweeted:

So will it change the fundamental fabric of Twitter’s “micro-blogging” nature and ruin what’s been to know a beautiful product?

We don’t think so, it’s a natural progression that was always bound to happen, but only time will tell.
