What do you think of Twitter's 280 character experiment? Prefer 140?

Twitter shocked the world by announcing an experiment: going away from the iconic 140-character limit and expanding it to 280. Comment below and vote here https://twitter.com/ProductHunt/...
@producthunt they have been talking about doing this for some time so no shock from me. I am not yet certain how this will impact the Consumption Experience. But Tweets will become twice as wordy. Not sure how that helps consumption. Less Tweet Threads or Storms might be one immediate outcome.
