According to several reports from Recode and WSJ, Twitter as we know it will soon be turned to Facebook, possibly by March! How? They want to extend the tweet limit from 140 characters to 10,000 characters – that is like turning Twitter to a blog.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey tweeted a text screenshot that explained the reason behind the change.
Also, according to The Guardian via Recode, this news has affected Twitter shares, which plummeted to 2.86%.
In my opinion, the whole advantage to Twitter is its brevity, 280 characters max would be ok, but 10,000 come on! Just imagine if this happens, people will want to post a thesis on the negative effect of global warming on twitter.
