I know how frustrating it can be when you have more to say than those 280 characters allow. So I’ll share some tricks to tweet longer tweets and express yourself fully.

Method 1: Post longer tweets via Twitter threads

You can simply create a Twitter thread natively on Twitter. Compose your first tweet, click the "+" icon, and keep writing whenever you hit 280 characters.

You add up to 25 tweets on a Twitter thread when posted natively on Twitter.

Method 3: Use the screenshots of longer tweets

That's actually another simple and free method: Create your "long tweet" somewhere (even on Microsoft Word, maybe), take a screenshot, and add the image to your tweet.

Notice that it's actually a bit uncomfortable to read, and the longer you write, the harder it becomes to read.

Note that you can upload up to 4 images per tweet. So you still need to create threads if you'll upload more than 4 images. See how below ⤵️:
