Twitter is considering #280characters is it good or not?
We recently learned that Twitter is considering #280characters which will allow us faithful and enthusiast users to write even more so that we can communicate with our followers around the globe.
To be completely honest with you, it is a language that took me a lot of time, energy and effort to learn as well as understand. It is practically a second nature to write in 140 characters.
Not only it is my absolute favorite social media network, due to the fact that I can connect directly with some of the most brilliant minds.
it is a way for me to learn something new every single day, from discoveries, advancements to breaking news and monumental gaffes by someone who wants more covfefe.
Yes, it’s true that we have to keep up with technology and embrace change, however the question begs to be asked.
Why change the recipe that has made Twitter a success?
Why change the secret sauce? Is it because it needs to be more competitive with the world’s largest social media site and needs to become commercial and include ads in order to survive or be viable?
Since it’s creation, Twitter has been a platform where people from all walks of life, from students to rock stars to politicians and unfortunately, the current leader of the free world (who instead of uniting us is creating hate and discord with every tweet in flames).
We are able to write about what’s on their mind and share it with the entire planet immediately and in only a few words.
There is a quote that states the truth, you are what you tweet.
You can tweet for the good or to create chaos just for personal reasons or objectives. Within the 140 character limit, you are forced to be short, concise and straight to the point.
If your message is long and absolutely must be shared without making any changes, you can create a thread by adding a number 1 of X at the beginning of the tweet.
Crafting the perfect tweet is harder than it looks. You have to write eye catching titles infused with humor, personality and short link (bit.ly) to where you want your reader to go to.
I won’t go too far into the technical details but from my experience and results I’ve gotten in the past and present, simply make it short and sweet.
There is just something that I URGE and PLEAD Twitter, and I know that millions of others are asking too, is that instead of focusing on expanding the character limit, is to add the edit button.
Here we are over a decade later and every other social media network has it:
Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and more.
Why can’t they see that it would save us some time and energy and hey, if they still allow the Tweeter in Chief to laugh at his expense for his mistakes (remember everything that is uploaded to the internet stays there forever), then they have to come up with an edit option for like yesterday!
Just wanted to share my opinion on what needs to be taken care first of before they move on to other things right?
Now I’m turning this over to you…

Should Twitter consider #280characters?
Or shall it remain the same?
