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 it doesn't matter all that much to me. Even as an avid user of Twitter, I've always believed the character limit was a tad arbitrary. (I'm very aware this opinion is in an extreme minority.) That said, I don't really believe expanding the limit is all that necessary, either. This seems to be another one of Twitter's peculiar changes that have no rhyme or reason. It comes off as a sort of desperation, hoping outsiders will get excited and want to join.
