Twitter Blue expands to India, Brazil and more, increases tweet limit to 4,000 characters
Twitter used to be a social media platform where users had only 140 characters to say what they had to say. Later it increased to 280, then the platform brought threads, and now Twitter Blue users are getting 4,000 characters per tweet, defeating the purpose of being clear with a handful of words.
