    • The move comes at a
      time when Twitter, under the stewardship of co-founder Jack Dorsey, is working
      hard to rekindle user growth. Twitter’s second-quarter monthly average users
      grew at the slowest pace since the company went public in 2013.

    • Several users and
      designers have expressed concerns as to whether Twitter should ditch its
      signature character limit to better compete with Facebook, where there is no
      limit on the length of the posts.

    • It’s unclear what
      Twitter’s new product will look like,
      Re/code
      said.

    • A Twitter spokeswoman
      declined to comment.
    •  
    • The company has been
      working on ways to make its service easier to use and entice people to spend
      more time with it. It has already removed the 140-character limit from its
      direct messages and announced plans to let users buy goods and make political
      donations through tweets.

    • Increasing the
      character limit has been discussed at Twitter for years, more so in recent
      months under Dorsey, sources said.
