It's not obvious that the length of a tweet on Twitter might affect the number of people who engage with it. After all, tweets are all roughly the same length: Fewer than 140 characters.

Social media marketing and analytics company Track Social decided to measure whether tweet length affected the likelihood of getting a retweet from others on Twitter. The company found that the sweet spot for tweet length is 71-100 characters:
