Twitter currently limits tweets to characters, but has doubled that to characters for a small group of users. The current character limit was "a major cause of frustration" for some users, the firm said in a blog post.
The firm has been suffering from slowing growth and the shift could be one way for the firm to widen its appeal and attract new users. Ms Rosen said the longer character limit was being tested in all languages bar Japanese, Chinese and Korean which she said could convey more information in a single character.
Analysis, Dave Lee, BBC North America technology reporter With constant concerns over hate speech, propaganda bots, and trolling - you might wonder why Twitter is spending its time worrying about doubling the character limit.

So why not make it a little longer? It won't be a dramatic change. Twitter will hope it increases the engagement and attention times of its users. Marketers will have more characters with which to get their message across, which might make Twitter a bit more cash.
