The beauty of Twitter is that it is short and sweet.
You get a snippet of news or the inner workings of someone’s mind in 140 characters or less.
So when there was speculation that Twitter were set to extend their character limit to 10,000, people were not happy.
But we’re happy to announce – it’s officially not happening!
The Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey says the character limit is going nowhere.
“It’s staying. It’s a good constraint for us and it allows for of-the-moment brevity,” Dorsey told NBC.
And while we too feel the frustration of trying to reduce 145 characters into 140 and still make sense… we think this is an excellent move!
