Finally, it is time to bid farewell to something that, while annoying at times, was integrated with our social media habits for so long.
140 character tweets.
When Twitter first popped up, the limit existed to keep things quick, clean, and concise. Also (at the time) to reflect the length of SMS messages.
As people changed, and they wanted a little more room to express themselves, people began to rally for longer limits.
Twitter soon realized that they had a niche, being the quick and fast social media, rather than a slower update style like Facebook – and so they never change.
However, 280 character limits are now a thing! Twitter is slowly rolling it out, testing out the feature.
Soon, you can double your thoughts! It’s being tested with a few select people now, and will be available for everyone soon.
