Now everyone will have a 280-character limit.
Twitter will expand its character limit to 280 characters for all users in “coming days,” Politico reported this morning. The company had originally doled out the expanded limit — up from 140 characters — to only a select few, random users. Per Politico: "D.C. is beginning to buzz about it, as political operatives have caught wind of the change."
In other words, people are forecasting that Trump's tweets are going to get at least twice as controversial.
