ICC's Tweet is Winning Internet After Twitter Rolls Out 280-Character Limit

ICC's Tweet is Winning Internet After Twitter Rolls Out 280-Character Limit

This week, Twitter announced that it was expanding the 140-character limit globally; allowing every Twitter user around the world express themselves more explicitly in a Tweet.

Starting on Tuesday, tweets reveled in the partial banishment of the old 140-character limit, while others lamented that Twitter might turn into a kind of Facebook after the change. He wasn't sure whether Twitter writers would even know what to do with the extra space: "To suddenly have more characters available goes against the expectation of the user". Those tweeting in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean could convey an entire thought without getting cut off. At the same time, the 140-character limit did force you to be concise and witty, and there was a certain value to that.

However, cricket's governing body, International Cricket Council (ICC) took good use of the new character limit and came up with the following tweet. If we can expect to see the same amount of tweets, does that mean the expanded character limit did not encourage people to tweet more than they usually do?

Proverbs, adages and insults are freely thrown on Twitter Nigeria and with more characters, expect to see epistles, statements and toxic stories that really touch.

Twitter ultimately made this change in an effort to make it easier for people to tweet. According to the company, the move has been put in motion to try and draw in more users and boost engagement of the social network.
