Twitter increases display name character count to 50



Few days after officially replacing its 140-character tweet limit with a new 280-character limit, the social platform has done something similar, but much less conspicuous.

Though many users see the new 280-character tweet limit as an unnecessary move, and the site has been flooded with updates mocking the change since it came into effect.


Before now, Twitter display name could only contain 20 characters, but now you have upto 50 characters.


Notably, this change only applies to display names and not to the user names. For those of you confused as to which is which, the user name is what follows the @ symbol and is often referred to as a "handle." That is still, for now, blessedly limited to 15 characters. The display name, on the other hand, is that thing people fill with emoji. Got it?

This change is sure to please all those who felt that the previous law of the Twitter land, 20-character display names, stifled creativity, expression, and in no way contributed to an easy-to-read experience while scanning their respective feeds. Cough.

  4. They are ruining the app's heritage in my opinion. The beauty of Twitter was always "expressing yourself with fewer words"
