Recently, Twitter Inc. (TWTRFree Report) rolled out a 280-character limit for tweets, doubling it from the traditional 140 limit, in an attempt to make tweeting easier for people and to enable them to express more in a tweet.

The company has been testing the feature in a small group of users since September.

The character expansion has been made across all languages except Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Per Twitter, these three Asian languages convey more information in a single character compared to others and that is why they have not been considered for the increase.
