Tweeters React To Twitter’s New Upgrade

By Adeoluwa Atayero

Everyone’s favorite bird app has gotten an upgrade and its fan base is feeling some type of way about it.

Twitter announced earlier today that it will now be accommodating 280 character and moving on from its 140 character limit. Jack Dorsey, Chief Executive of Twitter, made the big announcement on Tuesday on the app.

This is a small change, but a big move for us. 140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit. Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet. And at the same time maintaining our brevity, speed, and essence! https://t.co/TuHj51MsTu

Now close Twitter.

The 280-character limit is a terrible idea. The whole beauty of Twitter is that it forces you to express your ideas concisely (1/47)

280 characters? Really? If you cannot manage to say what you need to communicate in 140 characters then you have no business being on Twitte
