Twitter could remove its signature 140-character limit

Twitter, the microblogging service that’s always capped tweet length at 140 characters, could scrap that signature restriction with a new product it’s building, according to a report from Recode. The product would let users post “long-form content” to the social-media platform, according to the report, which cites unnamed people at the company.

Last month, Twitter raised the character limit on its popular direct message feature, which lets users communicate privately with each other. The limit for direct messages was raised to 10,000 characters from 140; Facebook’s Messenger, a similar service, has a limit of 20,000.
