280 character Tweets are long and bloated. A lot of people hate them. If that's you, now you can block those Tweets from your timeline.
Block 280 will automatically collapse any Tweets over 140 characters for you. And if you really feel up for a good read, you can always click to individually reopen them.
It does give people a choice…
Blocking tweets longer than 140 characters is petty and immature at best, pathological at worst. You don't want to be any of those, do you?
This reminds me of the kid we all grew up with who whined and went home if the other kids didn't let him play their game the way *he* wanted to. Okay you web development geniuses out there: make a browser extension for long tweeters, which automatically blocks anyone nursing on this Block280 pacifier, when their binky gets in the way of a long tweet. Bonus points if you can make it work whether or not a tweet was long. Megabonus point if you can make it work even for users who can't long tweet.
@theconorbrowne – Please know that I mean no ill will towards you. You're just the messenger; I respect your desire and ability to code up a solution that solves a problem… even if I think the people with that problem should simply take a deep breath and count to four.Al Boulley has never used this product.
