If this actually happens, it could well be the point at which Twitter becomes even less relevant alongside that other social network with more than a billion users and that happens to be streamlining its posting experience to emulate Twitter. According to Marketing Land’s article “Report: Twitter Plans To Allow Tweets Longer Than 140 Characters” –
The Recode report, citing “multiple people familiar with the company’s plans,” said the new product would allow people to post long-form content, but the sources didn’t say what that would look like. Multiple sources have told Recode that the character limit has been a point of discussion in recent months under interim CEO Jack Dorsey, who is apparently supportive of the proposed change. The company, which is searching for a permanent CEO, has been struggling to find ways to increase its user base.
Is this Twitter’s path to self-destruction?
