After ending its iconic 140-character limit and giving nearly everyone 280 characters, Twitter has now expanded the maximum number of characters you can use in your display name.
The original 20 character limit has increased by more than double, to a total of 50 characters.
Now users with longer names will not have to struggle for abbreviations for their Twitter profile and can also make room for all seasonal-themed display names.
The change only affects display names as usernames (or handles) are still capped at 15 characters.
Starting today, your Twitter display name can be up to 50 characters in length! Go ahead, add that middle name or even a few more emojis. https://t.co/QBxx9Hnn1j— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) November 10, 2017
