Twitter soon might let people post tweets longer than 140 characters. Extra characters will likely be shoved into expandable cards, reports AdAge, which added that “Re/code reported that Twitter is considering expanding the number of characters people can include in a tweet from 140 to potentially 10,000. For an idea of how long a 10,000-character tweet would be, Quartz pulled an example from Homer’s “The Illiad.”

“If Twitter does away with the 140-character limit, that would be a big change and, per Re/code, one that could happen by the end of the first quarter of 2016 (also known as by the end of March).

“Hours later Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey indirectly addressed the report with a tweet that included zero characters and a picture that contained way more than 140 characters.”
