Twitter has always been about brevity, but the company seems to be losing its strict 140-character limit for every tweet. As an experimental feature, the company has allowed some people to use up to 280 characters per tweet. Like all the important changes to products that many people use, this one has turned out to be polarizing. Some people love it while others do not. No matter which side of the debate you are on, you can try the feature for yourself and decide if you like it. If Twitter has activated it on your account, it's fantastic. If not, these steps will help you double the number of characters in each of your tweets.
