After spending the last 10 years training our brains to think in 140 characters, Twitter has decided to test a new 280 character limit and as you can imagine, a lot of people are not happy.
The company announced that they are testing this experiment with a small group — especially users whose language is not Japanese, Chinese or Korean because you can say much more in certain languages than the others.
Twitter, you are mad (English)
Twitter, O jẹ aṣiwere (Yoruba)
Twitter, Ị na-agba agba (Igbo)
Twitter, Kai mahaukaci ne. (Hausa)
Twitter, 너 너 미쳤어. (Korea)
Frankly speaking, the new 280 character limit is way better than the 10,000 character limit that was rumored last year.
What do you think? Do you welcome the extra 140 characters?
