Reports emerged this week that Twitter is readying the launch of longer tweets. Word is that they will eliminate the 140-character limit and expand it to possibly 10,000 characters, which would parallel the recently increased limit on direct messages.
CEO Jack Dorsey took to Twitter to share some words on the subject. He used an image of words to say more than 140 characters about it:

A bit vague, but do with that what you will.
According to Re/code, which first reported on the potential limit lift, Twitter would still limit tweets to 140 characters in the timeline. You would have to click to view the additional text.
