140 or 280?

Twitter has officially unleashed its 280 character count to the masses.

The social media platform had originally selected only a small number of accounts to test the longer feature. However, it announced on Tuesday that it would expand the character limit from 140 characters to 280 for all of its users.

We've bred a generation with an attention span barely capable of absorbing 140 characters - how will they cope with 280? ;D

Badly, if RoTM is anything to go by.

I wonder if he is crying.

I've never posted much via twitter because it's so limited, having to split up text makes for confusion

140 is a cool way to do things in this busy world of ours. Let's see how 280 goes....people like me, I get fed up reading long drivel unless of course it has humour.  :)

You have no understanding of humour, as you are not intelligent enough. 140 is not cool. Its literal dumbing down.

You should read 1984 by George Orwell.

Above is the full text, to read for free online. It is not a scam or pirated. As the copyright has expired, it is perfectly legal to reproduce the text as it is now considered public domain.

I think every person who wants to comment on politics in any shape or form should read this book in its entirety before doing so.

If, like Mac, you are not over endowed in the brains department, then I recommend Animal Farm first.

As usual you fail to understand.


I don't fucking care about your attention.

I just like taking the piss out of you and belittling you. You are unimportant, so the only useful purpose you serve is a thing to be insulted.

Twitter users can't count passed 140 characters and I don't reckon they realise the spaces count as a character.
It is a place for fools and fools who follow fools tweets, it is a hideous dumbing down in discourse:

Such and such celebrity/politician/person in the news
tweeted this:

Christ would have loved it too I guess with short meaningless empty soundbites.

This is all the combover can manage otherwise it has to be crap rhetoric written for him to read off an autocue.
At least Sarah Palin managed to come out with more than 140 characters of unscripted gobsheit.

You're not a fan then?

Twitter is what you make of it but this Tweet kind of makes your point rather nicely.

You have a massive growth from your forehead. Its not a tumor or anything cancerous. Its a penis.

I personally think that it is a unique talent to stick 140 and express an opinion. One could always expand from there.

That is absolutely not a unique talent. You utter fuckwitt.

In that sentence I have expressed not just one, but two opinions.

Any fucker who can write with any capacity can express an opinion in just a few words.
