TwiT­Ter dOu­Bles lengTh Of user dis­play names TO 50 char­ac­Ters

The Sunday Guardian - - Business -

SAN FRAN­CISCO:In yet an­other over­haul within a week, Twit­ter has dou­bled the length of users’ dis­play names to 50 char­ac­ters—up from the orig­i­nal 20. “The new length means the user can add more emo­jis. Many users em­braced the change, though some also ques­tioned why Twit­ter was adding some­what gim­micky fea­tures when it could be work­ing on tack­ling its more se­ri­ous is­sues on the plat­form,” The Verge re­ported late on Fri­day. To change your dis­play name, the user can head over to their Twit­ter pro­file, click on “Edit Pro­file” on the right side of the page, and then click on the cur­rent dis­play name. No­tably, users can make the changes only on the dis­play name, not the “@user” name. Ear­lier this week, Twit­ter in­tro­duced a new 280-char­ac­ter limit that is now avail­able vir­tu­ally for all users— in­clud­ing for those who tweet in Ben­gali, Gu­jarati, Hindi, Kan­nada, Marathi and Tamil.
