Twitter has begun testing doubling the character limit of tweets with some users.
It's not clear exactly how small this group of people will be.
Twitter is known for allowing users to post short status updates with bite-sized pieces of information. "Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet", Twitter chief executive officer Jack Dorsey tweeted.

"Twitter plans to increase the limit to #280characters since it's hard for Trump to make a declaration of war with only 140 characters", comedy writer Nick Jack Pappas wrote. Some worry that the new limit could take away from Twitter's appeal, which is in its brevity.
