Twitter 280: Social site hopes more characters mean more users

Twitter is doubling the 140-character limit to 280 characters.

That means longer tweets for those who struggle to condense their message on the micro-blogging site.

The company announced the changes would be effective immediately.

It is hoped that Twitter's evolution will help attract more users and increase growth.
