You may love or hate the idea of a 280-character limit on Twitter, but you can’t escape it. That’s because advertisers won’t let you.
Twitter announced Tuesday that for the first time in its 11-year history, it will lift the 140-character limit for tweets — letting some people test a new limit of 280 characters for all languages except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.
And as always, it wasn’t long before brands including Burger King, Durex and Charmin glommed on the news with their takes:
last night we received the 280 character count. we traded the extra 140 for beans. not even magic.
