The main feature of the service Twitter is a limit of 140 characters to create entries on your page. This limit has forced users to form their thoughts as briefly as possible, but often they simply can not fit in 140 characters. Realizing this, the social network administrators have begun to test the limit of 280 characters.
As demonstrated by the internal study of Twitter, 9% of English-speaking users exceed the limit of 140 characters when writing tweets – because of this they have to edit messages (often changing their style of writing) or stretch the record on several posts. The corresponding figure among Chinese, Japanese and Korean people are much less – 0.4%. This is due to the fact that with the help of characters can convey more information than using the words of the same volume.
In 2016, to combat the severe limitation Twitter ceased to be taken into account in the limit media and surveys, and in 2017 in the constraint no longer include user nicknames when referring to or responses.
