Twitter character limit increased to 280-character tweets, with exception of Korean, Chinese, Japanese Updated: 2017-11-08 12:25:02 KST

Twitter is officially expanding its tweet character limit.
The online social media platform announced Wednesday that the limit to the length of tweets has been doubled to 280 characters from what was previously 140, after a trial run over several months.
This however excludes Korean, Chinese, and Japanese, with the reason being that these languages can convey meaning in a single character.
A Twitter affiliate explained that this change reflects their hopes of more users joining the social media platform by making it easier for users to express their ideas online, while at the same time maintaining brevity in their tweets.
