CNN Media: The company announced on Tuesday it is doubling how many characters users can cram into a tweet.

Most tweets will now fit 280 characters, up from 140. The new limit will roll out to Twitter users in almost all 40 languages Twitter supports.

In late September, Twitter began a test of 280-character tweets with a small group of users. Like many Twitter (TWTR, Tech30) changes, some users complained about the move. Interestingly, Twitter said that after the novelty of tweeting more characters wore off, most people in the test stopped tweeting the full length.

According to the company, only 5% of tweets sent from people in the 280-character test group were longer than 140 characters, and just 2% were over 190 characters.

FoxNews is breathing a sigh of relief as they can still have Bo on for comic relief

He also had a side job for roger & billO, discrediting any women who dared to tell the world exactly what they were all about.

Unfortunately Hootsuite still only accepts 140, so my Tweets for the group are still stuck in day-before-yesterday.

right now most of his tweets are 2 or 3 parts, so we probably will just see longer tweets, but fewer of them
