Twitter appears ready to loosen its decade-old restriction on the length of messages to give its users more freedom and make its service more appealing to a wider audience.

CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey telegraphed that change is coming in a tweet he posted Tuesday a few hours after the technology news site Re/Code reported Twitter is exploring increasing its limits on text from 140 characters to as many as 10,000.

Dorsey didn’t directly address the Re/Code report that cited unnamed people, but he made it clear that Twitter isn’t wedded to the 140-character limit. He made his point by posting a screenshot of a text consisting of 1,325 characters.

Twitter declined to comment on its plans.
