Twitter is planning to expand the scale of tweets far beyond the traditional 140-character limit, reports the Wall Street Journal. The company might permit regular tweets to reach 10,000 characters, which would match the current limit on the number of characters allowed within direct messages. Tweets would still be capped to the 140-character limit when viewed online and in mobile apps, says an unnamed source cited by the Journal, but users would be able to view the full-length tweet by clicking to expand the text. The service will still inform users when they've reached the maximum number of viewable characters. The change is expected to arrive by March, although Twitter did not comment on the Journal's report.
