Twitter Blue users can now post 4,000 character tweets

One of the main identifying characteristics that always made Twitter unique was that tweets had to be relatively short. For a long time that meant 140 character tweets, then it doubled to 280, but now, following Twitter’s list of updates and “improvements” following the Elon Musk acquisition, a new feature has been introduced for subscribers. to post tweets up to 4,000 characters.

The idea seems to be to remove the need for long Twitter threads, instead having one big block of text instead. These long tweets will also be able to use all of Twitter’s regular features, including hashtags, polls, images, and more. originally displayed, and you need to click the “Show more” to know more.

Anyone on Twitter can read longer tweets, but only Twitter Blue followers (in the US) will be able to post them at this time, although a global rollout is undoubtedly imminent.

Will you soon be writing 4,000 character tweets?
