How to Put 280 characters in a tweet in Twitter

Twitter is best in its way but it has its own rules and regulations, i.e 140 characters in a single tweet. Surprisingly, many users came up and asked how to increase characters limit in a single tweet. So, we tested a code on twitter and then increased the limit from 140 words to 280 words. So, I hope you also would like the change. here it how it goes:

How to tweet 280 characters on

For Google Chrome Browser:

  1. Open Tweetdeck and sign in with your Twitter account.
  2. Click View > Developer > Developer tools
  3. Click the Sources tab.
  4. Now click on the > button and select Snippets.
  5. Click New Snippet.
  6. Now go to this Github page and copy the code you see there. Alternatively you can copy it right here:,e,f,g,c,d,h){c=c||function(){};d=d||function(){};b=this.request(b,{method:f,params:Object.assign(e,{weighted_character_count:!0}),processor:g,feedType:h});return b.addCallbacks(function(a){c(},function(a){d(a.req,"",a.msg,a.req.errors)}),b};

twttrTxt=Object.assign({},twttr.txt,{isInvalidTweet:function(){return!1},getTweetLength:function(){return twttr.txt.getTweetLength.apply(this,arguments)-140}});

  1. Now paste this code in the box to the right side of the New Snippet button.
  2. Click the Play icon.
  3. Now click the new tweet button in Tweetdeck and voila! You’ll see that the character limit is now 280. Go ahead and tweet your heart out.


For Firefox Browser:

  2. Click Tools > Web developer > Web console.
  3. The console will show up on the bottom half of the page. Right at the bottom, you’ll see an icon that looks like this >. Click the space to its right. This is where you need to paste the code.
  4. But first, you need to tell Firefox that you know what you are doing. Type allow paste. This will allow you to paste the code — it’s a simple security measure to prevent people from accidentally messing up their browser.
