The company found out the reason behind this huge difference between Eastern and Westerns in the usage of tweet characters, East countries like China, Japan and Korea can convey the double amount of information in just one character as compared to westerns.

 

 

A recent study showed that the Japanese use only 15 characters on an average to tweet while English Language users tweet around 34 characters in average. They also found out that only 0.4 percent of Japanese use 140 characters while tweeting whereas it is 9 percent with English language tweets.

More Character

According to Twitter, all languages except Japanese, Chinese and Korean will get the expanded 280 characters limit Tweet feature.
