        After Twitter has increased the character limit for tweets from 140 to 280 characters, the profile name may now be longer: instead of 20, 50 characters are now allowed. A bit more space for a middle name or a few colorful emojis, writes Twitter on Twitter. However, the new limit only applies to the displayed name on the profile page, but not to the username that appears in the profile URL (for example, twitter.com/heiseonline).

However, the short message service is not running properly: the number of users is stagnating, the balance sheet is red and the criticism of the arbitrary handling of controversial tweets does not want to be silenced. Now that "anything is possible," Twitter could banish "one or two Nazis," a user suggests in response to the new character limit. Another popular desire of users is the ability to post-edit tweets to correct typos. Donald "covfefe" Trump would like that – he's one of the most industrious and infamous Twitter users.
