What a time to be alive RT @verge: Twitter’s new, longer tweets are coming September 19th theverge.com/2016/9/12/1289…
+@_icze4r Sounds good; never really saw why images counted as characters, considering there's also an image limit.

GREATEST NEWS I'VE GOTTEN ALL YEAR @verge
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @idkjro @verge
+@andreslop24 How about they just get rid of the pointless character limit completely?
pointless? Nobody want to come here and read a wall of text
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.
TUMBLR WITHOUT LIMITS
no no no. Direct & to the point please. Short & sweet/sour.
here comes those long ass paragraph tweets about how some people are depressed and hurt.
still only 140 characters, just not counting media attachments, hardly going to be War & Peace!
Also, folks w their long ass tweets complaining about the tweet-length being given to those who are hurt and depressed.
holy shittttttttttt
+@NeoGameSpark Yeah, that's cool and all. BUT WHEN ARE WE GETTING AN EDIT FEATURE?!?!
BUT WE STILL CAN'T EDIT THEM. Also SMS messages are 160 characters. Give me the 20!
So the twitter bird is allowed chirp longer? @twitter
still not gonna be as good as @sqeeqee though #SocialNetworthing
Finally, I can insult people in a more bombastic manner
😭😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😭😂😂😂😂😭 Omg
+@CARSSOF300 FINALLY AFTER SO MUCH
#Twitter’s new, longer tweets are coming September 19th theverge.com/2016/9/12/1289… @verge #smm #cm
+@sacketology inb4 it increases by like 15 characters
That includes whoevers tagged in tweet tho😒😒😁😁
oh nononononononono please no the only cool thing about Twitter was it's 140 characters please no no no no nooooooooooooooooooooooooo
FUCK YOU
positive changes. Not the kind we all were expecting!
Those who want to write books can fudge off to fakebook!
Okay, but why can I personally still not RT or quote my own tweets even though everyone else can?
This is actually good. RT @verge: Twitter’s new, longer tweets are coming September 19th theverge.com/2016/9/12/1289…
what good could this possibly contribute to a society that's already been conditioned to only pay attention to things that take less
+@MiaFarrow And now with even more advanced shadow-banning and trending scamming ??? Stock price should be down to 80 cents soon.
+@RickPamplin "usernames will no longer count when they're at the beginning of replies"
+@craigsender #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?
hope people are reading this so no one is assuming they'll extend 140 letter count
Woohyun must like this so much
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
