Popular micro-blogging platform Twitter is likely to increase the tweet character limit to 10,000, allowing users to post extremely long tweets on the platform. This comes a month after Twitter announced that Blue subscribers in the US can post tweets up to 4,000 characters long on the platform.
In response to a user’s question, Musk said that the company will soon increase longform tweets to 10,000 characters. One user posted, “Genius, @Twitter and @ElonMusk’s decision to allow long-form content on Twitter is brilliant product design. There will be fewer click bait type articles and people will stay on Twitter longer.”
Musk replied: “Increasing long form to 10k characters soon, with simpler formatting tools. And making it much easier for authors to charge subscription fees for premium content.” This was the second time in its 16-year history that Twitter increased the number of character limits.
For now, only Blue subscribers can post long tweets, but non-subscribers can read, reply, retweet and retweet them. Previously, tweets were limited to only 280 characters, which still applies to non-subscribers.
Meanwhile, Twitter is reportedly testing a new verification process for its Blue customers that will involve submitting a government ID.
The method of submitting users’ ID photos, combined with a selfie photo, to authenticate their Twitter accounts has been compromised through code-level insights exposed by product intelligence firm Watchful.AI, TechCrunch reports. has been disclosed.
However, it is still unclear whether the feature is being tested externally. According to the firm, the feature is under testing in the US, where it was found in the Android version of the Twitter application.
Adding a photo ID and selfie requirement to Blue’s verification process will help fight impersonation.
After launching Twitter Blue in India last month with a verification service that starts at Rs 650 per month, CEO Elon Musk reiterated that all old blue badges will be removed soon.
