After increasing the length of tweets to 240 characters, Twitter is now allowing longer display names on its platform. The company announced today that users can have display names that are as much as 50 characters long. Twitter earlier allowed display names to be 20 characters long only. The company is now encouraging users to add their middle names “or even a few more emojis”.

Twitter has been working on making changes to the platform, and though the company has brought about a bunch of new features, they have often been gimmicky and not really what users were asking for.

While the change has been appreciated by many, others have not been very appreciative of it. Twitter has been working on making changes to the platform, and though the company has brought about a bunch of new features, they have often been gimmicky and not really what users were asking for. Increasing the length of tweets though was something that most appreciated.

Further, as with many other social media platforms, Twitter has also been hit by fake accounts, bots and terrorist agendas. The company has acknowledged most of the problems, though we’re yet to see big changes towards the same.

With today’s updates, Twitter now allows tweets that can go up to 240 characters long, while display names can be 50 characters long. On the other hand, your Twitter handle can still only be up to 15 characters long.
