The 10,000 character limit isn’t final, but it would presumably be taken from the limit for Twitter direct messages – which saw its 140 character limit lifted last year. Sources familiar with Twitter’s thinking spoke to BuzzFeed News on condition of anonymity.
Though the launch date is not set in stone, Re/code reported that it’s targeted for the end of the first quarter, which ends March 31.
The potential extension also reportedly will not turn user feeds into a series of long, Facebook-ish rants from distant relatives. An option the company is reportedly considering is only showing the first 140 characters of the tweet, then giving a “see more” option for the user to click through to the other 9,860.
