The maximum character length for a single tweet on Twitter Blue has increased to 10,000 characters. In addition to adding bold and italic formatting to tweets, this update was revealed by the Twitter Write an account on Thursday. Additionally, you may earn some money from your lengthy tweets.
Twitter Write said in a tweet (thankfully not 10,000 characters long): “We’re improving Twitter’s writing and reading experience!” Tweets up to 10,000 characters are now supported with bold and italic text formatting, starting today. Tap on ‘Monetization’ in settings to enable Subscriptions to earn income directly on Twitter. Sign up for Twitter Blue to access these new features.
Compared to the previous limit of 4,000 characters for Twitter Blue subscribers, the move to 10,000 characters is a significant increase. Additionally, twitter blue tweets can be formatted in bold and italics to make them more distinguished from normal tweets.
In an effort to help Twitter bounce back financially, owner Elon Musk has been pushing Twitter Blue, which is currently $8 a month or $84 a year. In addition to writing lengthy tweets, Blue subscribers can edit or delete recent tweets, save tweets for later, upload lengthy videos, and apply themes to their Twitter pages. Musk still has a difficult time making enough money to pay off the company’s enormous debt, particularly if he continues to rely on Blue subscriptions.
Several snarky comments were left on the tweet announcing the change to 10,000 characters and improved formatting on Twitter. “Italics and bold for $8 per month? Quite the package deal, one user commented. Another person commented, “Oh joy, even longer tweets to never read and immediately block.” A third asked, “You want writers to pay YOU to write essays on your platform?”
Twitter is attempting to sweeten the deal by encouraging subscribers to get paid for their lengthy tweets because many people object to the idea of paying to use Twitter Blue. For Twitter Blue users, there is a setting called Monetization that advertises bonus content for your most devoted followers. This monetization strategy suggests giving your most devoted fans something extra in exchange for them making a certain sum of money.
Twitter estimates that a Blue user who charges $4.99 per user per month for bonus content could make anywhere between $300 and more than $3,000 per month in the Monetization section under Settings. Naturally, your bonus material would need to be alluring and intriguing enough to persuade enough people to pay for the opportunity. Users of Twitter Blue must be at least 18 years old, have 500 followers, and have used Twitter within the previous 30 days in order to be eligible for this plan.
