Twitter announced yesterday that they would be testing longer tweets with a small group of users. Since it’s inception in 2006, tweets have been limited to 140 characters. Now, they’re considering moving to 280 character tweets. Double the characters, double the fun, right?

While some users have expressed excitement over the proposed change, most are sort of confused as to why they’re changing the one thing no one asked them to change.

There are plenty of problems with the social media platform. Maybe longer tweets wasn’t at the top of the list?

Ironically, the test group did not include Trump. Sad!

Finally, a bright side!

Twitter is going to turn into one big meme, in the mean time.

Of course, this will likely mean the end of tweet threads that are 1423 tweets long.

Here’s an idea: let’s give them 280 character tweets!

Goddamit, Jack. Your country was counting on you. Still, watching him come up with more words that don’t make sense will be amusing.

Lou Bega approves this message. In the end, that’s what matters, right?

So many emojis! Still don’t want 280 of them, even from Cher.

Chrissy is one of the best things about the platform. Faux pas not giving her 280, in my opinion.

Ultimately, most of those characters are going to die anyway.

If 280 means dog can tell us about his zoom, then it can’t be that bad.

Above all, they just want to give the people what they ask for!

So far, people have more bad than good to say about the longer tweets. It remains to be seen what will happen to the social media platform once it’s rolled out to all users. One of the best parts of tweeting is the brevity. People are forced to be concise! We hope this doesn’t change what we’ve come to love about Twitter. But on the other hand, we’re really looking forward to better grammar and punctuation.

You’ve got 280, use that apostrophe!
