Twitter testing shift from 140 to 280 characters

Twitter thinks 140 characters might be too constraining for English writers.

The 140-character limit is Twitter's defining feature and also its most controversial. Critics say that it makes the service confining and unfriendly to new users. Defenders say that enforced brevity is what makes the service so useful.

At least drumpf isn't on the list of beta testers, and will still have to shit in 140-character turds.

Our pendejo in chief is probably licking his chops in anticipation of being able to spew 280 characters worth of written diarrhea all at once.

You mean they're not doing it for everyone? :( SHIT I think having more than the constraining 140 characters allows a person to express themselves more accurately and
