Finally, I can insult people in a more bombastic manner
😭😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😂😂😂😭 Omg
still not gonna be as good as @sqeeqee though #SocialNetworthing
So the twitter bird is allowed chirp longer? @twitter
BUT WE STILL CAN'T EDIT THEM. Also SMS messages are 160 characters. Give me the 20!
Yeah, that's cool and all. BUT WHEN ARE WE GETTING AN EDIT FEATURE?!?!
holy shittttttttttt
here comes those long ass paragraph tweets about how some people are depressed and hurt.
Also, folks w their long ass tweets complaining about the tweet-length being given to those who are hurt and depressed.
still only 140 characters, just not counting media attachments, hardly going to be War & Peace!
How about they just get rid of the pointless character limit completely?
Because that would allow for paragraphs. It's supposed to be short and powerful
Sometimes you have to sacrifice grammar to be able to say what you want though and it's annoying.
then adjust the wording of your sentence. Use two tweets, it's been like that since 2007.
no no no. Direct & to the point please. Short & sweet/sour.
pointless? Nobody want to come here and read a wall of text
good now I can rant & cuss more to all the idiot fans out there who wanna talk stupid smack cuz I am the IG
Finally, we gotten a release date!
"I just think it's funny how"
what a great birthday present, thank you, @twitter
Sounds good; never really saw why images counted as characters, considering there's also an image limit.
What a time to be alive RT @verge: Twitter’s new, longer tweets are coming September 19th…
inb4 it increases by like 15 characters
"usernames will no longer count when they're at the beginning of replies"
And now with even more advanced shadow-banning and trending scamming ??? Stock price should be down to 80 cents soon.
what good could this possibly contribute to a society that's already been conditioned to only pay attention to things that take less
This is actually good. RT @verge: Twitter’s new, longer tweets are coming September 19th…
Okay, but why can I personally still not RT or quote my own tweets even though everyone else can?
Those who want to write books can fudge off to fakebook!
positive changes. Not the kind we all were expecting!
oh nononononononono please no the only cool thing about Twitter was it's 140 characters please no no no no nooooooooooooooooooooooooo
That includes whoevers tagged in tweet tho😒😒😁😁
#yosender It may only seem like a small tweak, but this changes the game for tweeting
Dang! We're not sure if we would classify this news as a blessing or a curse... What do y'all think?
That's annoying as hell, because it's not really any longer, they're just excluding emojis and certain characters from counting
towards the 140 character limit
Woohyun must like this so much
hope people are reading this so no one is assuming they'll extend 140 letter count
