Twitter Increasing The Character Tweet Limit To 280 Character For Some Users

A unique feature of  Twitter is its 140-character limit. No Twitter is chasing that as certain users can now blow up your timeline with massive, 280-character tweets. It all has to do with Twitter wanting people to Tweet more. Twitter says "when people don’t have to cram their thoughts into 140 characters" across all its markets, they tend to use the platform more. Tweets in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean "convey about double the amount of information" of languages like English, Spanish, Portuguese or French. Hence the move to double the character limit. The 280-character limit is currently only available "to a small group," with no mention in the announcement of when it plans to roll it out to the remaining Twitter users. Thoughts ?
