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
People will complain if they change and others will complain if they stay the same. The 140-character limit is based on the then-SMS cap of 160 characters. We've evolved beyond flip phones, the web has evolved beyond ICQ and link directories. "We" all hated when Facebook added the Newsfeed and I'm sure someone complained when automobiles disrupted horse drawn carriages.
