Late on Tuesday, Twitter announced its plans to increase its current character limit from 140 to 280.
In a statement published on the platform's official blog, the company wrote:
"We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we're doing something new: we're going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean)."
Even though the new feature is still in its trial phase, and has only been made available to a small group of people, millions of users had a lot to say about it.
These include several Muslim tweeps who shared a few hilarious reactions to the news.
