Twitter will be sticking with its infamous 140-character limit on public posts. The company’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, when asked in an interview if the limit was staying or if it will change, answered, “It’s staying. It’s a good constraint for us and it allows for of-the-moment brevity.”

Dorsey made the comments on NBC’s Today show to help celebrate Twitter’s 10th anniversary. He added that the company is “changing a lot. We’re always going to make Twitter better”.

Twitter recently raised the limit of characters in direct messages from 140 to 10,000, but a recent rumor claimed that the company was considering a plan to increase the limit of characters in public posts up to 10,000 as well. Dorsey’s statement would seem to contradict those rumors.
