ICC posted Herath’s full name to celebrate extended limit on twitter

As the character limit on Twitter got increased to 280 characters from 140, the International Cricket Council (ICC) wasted no time in welcoming the change by typing full names of some of the Sri Lankan cricketers.

Joining Twitterati, ICC wrote, “Thanks to #280characters, we can now use the following names!
Warnakulasuriya Patabendige Ushantha Joseph Chaminda Vaas
Handunnettige Deepthi Priyantha Kumar Dharmasena
Dickwella Patabendige Dilantha Niroshan Dickwella
Herath Mudiyanselage Rangana Keerthi Bandara Herath”

After running a successful trial with few users, Twitter has finally decided to go with 280 characters virtually for all users. In September, Twitter launched a test that expanded the 140-character limit so that users could express themselves easily in a tweet.
