Elon Musk confirms immediate benefits from Twitter acquisition

Confronted by fans right on his official Twitter page, Musk has followed up on some of the popular requests he’s received, such as posting much longer tweets and videos.

According to fans, Twitter has already fallen behind the competition by insisting on rules that are far too rigid when it comes to shared messages and videos, with the platform losing out to formidable rivals like WeChat in the Asia region.

Believing he needs to catch up with the competition, Elon Musk could considerably relax the 280-character limit now used for tweets. While Musk won’t confirm the new limit in the first case, when it comes to sharing videos, the Twtitter CEO has responded by including the familiar “100” emoji.

“Can we get rid of the character limits, or at least expand them a lot? One of the best things about WeChat than Twitter. Would be better for public discourse than short clips, right?” one Twitter user asked.

According to the fan who came up with the proposal, social media platforms abound with video parodies and other forms of viral clips, and opening Twitter to this kind of content could have a major impact in terms of increasing the number of users. Currently, the absolute limit is 140 seconds for most users, with Twitter separately selecting partners who can use the extended 10-minute limit.

Also Elon Musk has been a staunch supporter of the option to edit tweets, and it’s easy to anticipate that the string of upgrades will only accelerate further.
