I am completely, 100 percent opposed to Twitter’s consideration of increasing the current tweet limit of 140 characters to a whopping 10,000 characters.
From 140 to 10,000? I completely understand the character increase for direct messaging purposes, but for the tweets themselves? Would Twitter even be the same? I think not.
Plus, we’ve had tools like TweetLonger for the longest time, for those who can’t shut up or save their ranting for places like Facebook.
For me personally, Twitter ranks first on my list of preferred social networking sites precisely because of its immense brevity. You must be creative, thoughtful, and quick to make it on Twitter – and that’s part of its ingenuity and one of its biggest value propositions against its competitors.
