Today Twitter dropped a bombshell - no longer bound by 140 characters, you can now fit double the amount of brain vomit in a single tweet.
You'd think y'all would be pleased about this, no?
literally my only talent was being able to think of tweets exactly 140 characters long. i don't know if I will be able to alter this to 280.

My warm take: the 280 characters thing is good, because @twitter is horrible and if they ruin it we'll all be free

why stop at 280 when you can walk into the ocean

1 .Everybody except Trump gets 280 character tweets
2. Everybody but Casey gets to edit tweets.

Will decide whether or not this is a good or bad thing later, but right now I'm just begging you guys not to give the 280 limit to Trump https://t.co/r3A2UjpxS0

"I really wish @realDonaldTrump had 280 characters for his Tweets," said no one ever.

me: I actually think 280 characters is still not really all that long
any editor who has worked with me: you WOULD think that

Right now I’m just testing to see if I’m able to post a Tweet with 280 characters which I firmly believe has got to be one of the worst fu

Hi Twitter, I'd just like to say that I really dislike the idea of switching to 280 character tweets, for the following reasons: 1st...(1/2)

Instead of working on ridding the Nazis & bots from their platform, Twitter is allowing 280 characters. WTF

But this...this is horrifying.
I am going to use this character expansion to continue to convince everyone BvS (ultimate edition) was an underrated work of art https://t.co/V0VA9IjRV8
