Twitter Keeping 140-Character Limit

It would seem that all those rumors about Twitter raising the character limit from 140 to 10,000 aren't true. Jack Dorsey told the Today Show that the 140-character limit is staying.

Twitter Inc's 140-character tweets are here to stay, Chief Executive Jack Dorsey said on Friday, ending speculation that the microblogging site might abandon one of its trademark features for a 10,000-character limit. "It's staying. It's a good constraint for us and it allows for of-the-moment brevity," Dorsey said on NBC's Today Show.
