Before, people needed to be as concise as possible in order to stay within 140 characters. Now microblogger can become more relaxed. No need to worry that a few words will not fit in the message, interrupting him at the most interesting place, and will have to cut the text by abbreviations and other tricks.

"We understand that many of you over the years of using Twitter strongly tied to the 140-character limit. We do feel for him the warmest feelings. But still we decided to try to increase the maximum amount of text, so as you can see in this great run."

But it is best to wait for when the feature will be available to all users without exception officially.
