Microblogging website, Twitter, known for its iconic 140-character tweets, said it would roll out 280- character tweets to users across the world, media reports on Wednesday said.

Twitter said it ran a test on 280-character tweets in September that showed users spent less time editing their tweets and were less likely to abandon them.

The company did not say when it would start allowing users to post 280-character tweets.
