Elon Musk says Twitter’s character limit will see a major increase

Twitter will be upping its character limit for tweets by a significant amount, CEO Elon Musk appeared to indicate Sunday.

Musk responded “yes” to a Twitter user who asked early Sunday if it is true the social media platform is raising the tweet character limit to 4,000. Users currently face a 280-character limit on their posts.

The Twitter CEO previously told users he planned to make changes to the platform’s character limit. Musk tweeted in mid-November that the “ability to do long tweets” was “coming soon” without offering further details.

Twitter did not respond to FOX Business’ request for comment.

The social media platform’s character limit last changed in November 2017, when Twitter expanded it to 280 from 140.
