Twitter users have often long felt that the 140-character limit could be expanded a little more, and it seems like the micro-blogging site has finally heard them. On Tuesday, the company said it is now testing 280-character tweets, allowing users to be more expressive.

In a blog post, Twitter said, “Our research shows us that the character limit is a major cause of frustration for people tweeting in English. When people don’t have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters and actually have some to spare, we see more people Tweeting — which is awesome!”

Some might wonder what took Twitter 11 years to decide that people need more than 140 characters to express themselves. One reason could be that the company did not want to alienate those who had already adapted to the format and are happy with it. Another reason why Twitter is extending the character limit is to bring equity to the languages that need more space to convey a phrase.
