The Instagram caption limit is 2,200 characters. So there’s sufficient space to add context to your posts through your captions. It’s also important to note that Instagram captions are truncated at 125 characters.
If you are in the mood to write a long caption, then there is a way around it. Maybe 2,200 characters aren’t enough for you. We all have those days. Simply write your caption as usual and when you run out space, post the photo and finish the caption in the comments.
People come to Instagram to look at the images/videos – not to read exceedingly long captions. You will perform best if you limit yourself to 138 to 150 characters. Social Report suggests that your Instagram captions should be even shorter – less than 125 characters.
“I’m not high maintenance, you’re just low effort.” “Whatever is good for your soul, do that.” “The way you speak to yourself matters the most.” “You can regret a lot of things but you’ll never regret being kind.”
To ensure your caption can be read without clicking the “more” button, aim for 125 characters or fewer. Yes, that’s even shorter than a tweet (which is now 280 characters rather than 140)! Sprout Social cites the sweet spot for Instagram captions as 138-150 characters.
How many words is 2100 characters?
Answer: 2,100 characters is between 300 words and 530 words with spaces included in the character count. If spaces are not included in the character count, then 2,100 characters is between 350 words and 700 words.
Shorter captions can prevent that, making users more likely to get the full message you wanted them to take away and getting to any of those crucial CTAs, too. In many cases, shorter can also be more effective. It’s easier to write shorter, concise sentences well than it is to write those beautiful long, languid posts.
