280 character tweets come to Tweetium Twitter app on Windows 10

Brad Stephenson


A new update for the third-party Twitter app, Tweetium, is now rolling out to Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users that will add proper support for tweets with up to 280 characters.

Twitter officially began support for 280 character tweets, up from the original 140, several months ago but not all apps have updated to support this and have still been limiting users to the original count. At the time of this writing, even the official Twitter app for Windows devices has failed to add support for the longer tweet format.

Tweetium is a paid app but retails for under $5 and boasts more functionality than the official twitter app. Here’s its official app description.

Tweetium is the premium Windows Twitter client you’ve been waiting for. It’s slick. It’s fast. It’s been designed with ample feedback from serious Twitter users, with the goal of helping you get the most out of Twitter on Windows desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones. The base app price gets you the fully featured Universal app with support for using one Twitter account at a time. You can then optionally subscribe to Tweetium Pro services from inside the app.

The Pro add-on service enables support for up to 7 accounts, push notifications (mentions, DMs, RTs, quotes, favs, and new followers), a richer Connect view powered by Tweetium Pro notification servers, TweetMarker sync, and integrated news reading powered by our other app, Newseen.
