Twitter said to be considering 10,000 character limit for tweets

According to a new report, it appears as though the team at Twitter may be gearing up to raise the limit as to how many characters you can have per tweet. Currently, tweets are able to contain 140 characters, but thanks to an internal project, codenamed "Beyond 140," that limit may jump as high as 10,000. Twitter recently raised the limit of characters in direct messages from 140 to 10,000, and people have been asking for the tweet limit to be raised as well. From Recode:

Twitter is building a new feature that will allow users to tweet things longer than the traditional 140-character limit, and the company is targeting a launch date toward the end of Q1, according to multiple sources familiar with the company's plans. Twitter is currently considering a 10,000 character limit, according to these sources.

While 140 characters may not always be enough to get your message out there, 10,000 seems like quite an unnecessary jump from Twitter. With a launch date aiming for the end of Q1, there is still plenty of time for this change to be modified before it's rolled out to users. Would you want that many characters, or is that just overkill? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
