Apparently those of us who speak English have a tougher time with Twitter... and the company is test-marketing a way to make it easier.
The idea? Going from 140 characters to 280.
Why? Because more of us are reaching the 140 character limit than those who Tweet in other languages. And that's probably not an accident... it's editing. (Guilty as charged.)
But do we really need to DOUBLE the number of characters? Some Twitter users don't seem to think so--
Others are embracing the possibilities--
I'm actually in the 140 character camp. It helps me focus my message. And I'm a wordy person who needs to focus!
