Managers and developers of the social network Twitter said that will test the increasing restrictions in the messages twice.

According to CEO Jack Dorsey, Twitter is going to try to increase the limit to 280 characters.

“It’s a small change but a big step for us. 140 characters — it was a random choice based on the 160 characters limit of SMS messages. Proud of how thoughtful the team approached solving the problem that people faced, trying to write a tweet,” said Dorsey.
