Good news for recruiters as Twitter raises character count

Recruiters will soon have twice the number of characters at their disposal for tweets on Twitter.

That’s because Twitter has now confirmed in a company blog that it will roll out doubling of its tweet limit from the traditional 140 character limit, with the exception of tweets in Japanese, Korean and Chinese, which will continue to have 140 characters. Apparently Twitter says tweet cramming is not an issue in these languages.

Twitter’s move follows a trial of the change, announced in September. At the time recruitment marketers warned agencies that just because they had double the number of characters they did not have to use them all.
