In a limited run of 280 character tweets, just 1 percent hit this limit. But now, most people use Twitter through its mobile app; the 140-character limit is no longer a technical constraint but nostalgia.

The 140-character limit certainly made it hard for businesses to share in-depth messages. Only five percent of tweets sent during the test and only two percent exceeded their 190-character limit.
