The 40 Best Tweets Celebrating Or Slamming Twitter’s New 280-Character Limit
There are two types of people in this world: individuals who embrace having 280 characters to spew their views on Twitter and individuals who despise the new 280-character tweet limit because they consider the forced brevity to be the underestimated genius of the social media platform. Twitter doubled the amount of tweeting users can do by increasing the tweet limit from 140 to 280 characters. On the bright side, you don’t have to abbreviate “your” to “ur” any longer (If you still use “ur” when you have 280 characters you’re a douche). On the downside, Twitter has been reincarnated as a newer version of Live Journal where everyone can voice their lengthy opinions on every topic under the sun even though nobody wants it. You know, like Facebook, but strangers instead of your family members. Twitter users exploded after the announcement of doubling their character counts with hilarity, snark, and indignation. Here are the funniest and best tweets celebrating or slamming Twitter’s new 280-character limit.
