Twitter has again increased the number of characters for a tweet to 25,000 for Blue subscribers.
The company raised the character limit to 4,000 in February and later increased it to 10,000 in April.
Prachi Poddar, an engineer at Twitter, announced the change in a tweet last week, saying, “We have increased the limit of NoteTweet (aka longform Tweet) from 10,000 to 25,000 characters. Enjoy longer NoteTweet and happy tweeting”.
The company also made the change to its Twitter Blue page. “Want to tweet more than 280 characters? Longer Tweets allow Blue subscribers to tweet up to 25,000 characters. You can also compile longer Tweets into a Quote Tweet or reply,” the company said.
In addition to increasing the character limit on tweets, Twitter Blue subscribers now have the option to upload longer videos. The microblogging platform allowed paid users to upload 60-minute 1080p videos in December last year.
Meanwhile, Twitter is reportedly working on limiting the number of direct messages (DMs) non-Blue users can send per day. Leaker Alessandro Paluzzi tweeted, “#Twitter is working to limit the number of DMs you can send per day before you have to sign up for @TwitterBlue.”
According to the screenshot shared by the leaker, after reaching the limit, non-Twitter Blue users will receive a message titled “Get authenticated to send more messages”.
