Twitter has divided it's users over-night, after announcing they'll be trialing a doubled character limit
Currently, most users only have 140 characters in which to fit their tweet into, but now the social network has revealed a small handful will have 280 characters to play with.
Can’t fit your Tweet into 140 characters? 🤔— Twitter (@Twitter)
We’re trying something new with a small group, and increasing the character limit to 280! Excited about the possibilities? Read our blog to find out how it all adds up. 👇
Needless to say, the people who are least happy about the change are Twitter's own users, with one particular person the centre of attention.
Twitter: We're introducing soon.— Laura Oceane (@searchingoceans)
Please don't tell Trump 😩— Fiona McMurtrie (@Fiona395)
Did Twitter really not think this thing through? Don't give Donald Trump extra space to start wars or embarrass us 🤦🏻♀️— Amanda K (@Wanderlust1124)
Twitter is increasing the character limit to 280 which means Trump will have twice the room to say four times as many idiotic statements.— Elton Castee (@EltonCastee)
