American social media firm Twitter has finally honored their plea and increased the Twitter characters from 140 to 280 characters.
This initiative has been adopted after Twitter technicians learned that the 140 characters limited thoughts of those who did not use English on Twitter.
The move had been on a pilot project few months ago but from today Tweeps can now enjoy the service at a free cost.
Below is how Kenyans reacted on the move.

We might have #280characters but that's still not enough to talk about all the places where civilians are caught in conflict.

I feel under pressure this morning to fill #280characters as it has changed on here from #140characters. There is now a countdown type clock ticking down as I type and when it gets to 20 characters it then tells you how many you have left – so stressful maybe less really is more!
