It is said that increasing the character limit of Twitter's tweet risks disrupting its fast-moving, real-time nature of the social-site which encourages users to put their expansive thoughts in a single line.
Twitter said it ran a test on 280-character tweets in September that showed users spent less time editing their tweets and were less likely to abandon them.
Yesterday, Twitter rolled out new parameters for its more than 300 million users. SMS messages had a 160-character limit, and Twitter wanted users to be able to post messages via phone, with enough room for a username.
