    Twitter 10,000 character tweets...

    What are people's thoughts on the rumors of Twitter allowing 10,000 character tweets? I'm not sure I like the idea, seems to undo what makes Twitter great.
    p.s. If we do see extra long tweets, I'm coining the word twart..

    Oh god please no. Twitter is fun because of how snarky, witty, brilliant you can be with 140 characters to a public audience. 10,000 characters for a message is cool and more than enough – that’s where you can expand to anyway. But to have that length for tweets just sucks, and I’d be pretty bummed out by it.

    I’d actually love to see how many users (e.g. before the rollout vs after the rollout) still default to 140 characters, or a rough approximation of it. I know that I personally keep my DMs short as a force of habit.

    Meh, people are still only going to put 140 characters in. The next 9860 characters will be used for hashtags.

    I could see them keeping the Twitter feed to 140 character tweets… but adding a "More" function… or an embedded long-form content block similar to embedded Twitter cards and quoted-tweets.
