How to get double character limit of tweets:

  • Download Tampermonkey for your browser of choice.
  • Visit this Github repository, click the “raw” button, then tell tampermonkey to “install” the script.
  • Now visit, make sure the script is running in Tampermonkey, then you will be able to tweet 280 characters instead of 140.

It’s a simple working trick that will work automatically on every time you use the web client to tweet. Tampermonkey is a widely used userscript manager, and the javascript is a harmless working trick that simply bypasses the tweet button limit. Twitter is slowly testing its 280 character tweet limit for a variety of accounts. Whether you can install Tampermonkey or can wait for Twitter to roll out the feature.
