    Since its initial rollout, Twitter has been a rather unique social network, limiting the number of characters usable in a single tweet. This feature resulted in compressed posts and as a consequence, content distributed on the platform is in a concise, and minimal form.

    According to re/code, Twitter is now considering increasing the character limit in public tweets, as stated by individuals familiar with company plans.

    I never tweet, however one of the first things I open when I fire my PC up is tweet deck, if you are following the right people it's the best news service in the world.

    I think the current limit is enough though.

    It's a business decision. If they can expand the business without damaging the brand they will probably try it but I think there is a big risk. Expanding the character string parts with the principle concept of Twitter. They should open a separate but parallel portal and call it "Twitter Talk"

    Remember, you heard it here first.
