Twitter Blue Subscribers Can Now Make 4,000-Character Tweets
Under the leadership of Elon Musk, the social media platform has introduced its longest character limit ever, but only for paid subscribers.
Twitter has added a new longer tweet feature, allowing paid subscribers to utilize 4,000 characters per post. If someone you follow uses the feature, your timeline will now display a “show more” button on their post to prevent the tweet from taking up an entire screen.
Currently, this new feature has a couple of limitations (aside from the fact you’ll need to pay for a Blue subscription to unlock it). If a tweet is longer than the standard 280 characters, it can’t be saved as a draft or scheduled for later. However, most other regular features should work as normal, including hashtags and pictures. In addition, non-Blue subscribers will still be able to interact with the posts as expected.
As well as writing 4,000-character Tweets, Twitter Blue subscribers will also be able to quote, retweet and reply with the same number of keystrokes, with the “show more” button hopefully preventing timelines from becoming clogged with multiple huge essays.

Elon Musk has been promising to add longer tweets for some time, also mentioning that company developers were working on adding custom formatting to posts, including bolding words and changing font size.
Twitter’s current 280-character limit was set back in 2017, replacing the original 140-character posts that made the platform famous. So what exactly will a 4,000 character tweet look like on screen? Well, this article runs to 1,500 characters, so as you can imagine, there’s plenty of potential for some truly epic rants to be unleashed!
