Is the Reported 10,000 Character Count Going to Kill Twitter?
Someone is overcompensating for its 'microblog' status.
The idiom goes “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Regretfully, Twitter didn’t get the memo, as the company is reportedly considering doing away with its beloved 140-character limit for a more-blowhard-esque 10,000 characters.
Twitter is currently testing a version of the product in which tweets appear the same way they do now, displaying just 140 characters, with some kind of call to action that there is more content you can’t see. Clicking on the tweets would then expand them to reveal more content.
