Musk confirmed this when answering a question from a user who asked if the social network had any plans to increase the limit to 4,000 characters. Musk briefly answered “Yes,” but did not elaborate. Thus, there are plans for an increase, but the exact timing has not yet been given.

Earlier, the developer Alessandro Paluzzi (Alessandro Paluzzi) said that the social network will increase the limit of one tweet to 4000 characters, but only the first 280 will be visible to users. You will get a similarity to the “spoiler” panel, as in other social networks and on many sites.

Also, Musk himself previously said that he wants to end the practice of “screenshots from a notebook”, for this it is planned to add the ability to post long texts. Note that at one time Twitter tested the “Articles” function for publishing long messages, but it was never launched.

But it seems that only owners of paid subscriptions will be able to edit tweets.

Google Password Manager is pretty versatile as it allows you to sync all your saved passwords across mobile and desktop devices. Until now, the Chrome desktop browser used PINs and passwords to authenticate users before exposing stored data.

Now, if your computer (Windows and macOS) has an external or built-in biometric authentication system, such as a fingerprint scanner or a face scanner, you can use it to access data stored in the Chrome password manager.

Get your tinfoil hats out how much more Windows 11

Many have heard claims that Windows 11 is heavily “spying” on users. As a recent YouTube video on The PC Security Channel shows, Windows 11 does send massive amounts of data to its own and third-party servers.

Worst of all, the OS does this before the user even installs or opens their first app. The author of the channel used the Wireshark application to analyze network activity on two “clean” versions of Windows.

The first was the brand new Windows 11, and the second was the good old Windows XP. A quick analysis revealed that Windows 11 connects to many third-party servers and services, most of which do nothing but track for ads. And it’s worth noting that all of these actions take place on every Windows 11 computer out of the box, without prompting the user and before he tries to use the Internet.
