"Brevity is the soul of wit. Now, allow me to go on and on and on about how that's true."

What always gets me is when someone goes on a rant, sending out multiple Tweets to make their point, ignorantly ignoring the fact that Twitter is the wrong platform for such things.

ReapTheChaos: What always gets me is when someone goes on a rant, sending out multiple Tweets to make their point, ignorantly ignoring the fact that Twitter is the wrong platform for such things.


And when they make a step towards being a slightly less wrong platform for such things, we get dipshiats like this guy pining for the halcyon days of limited thought documentation.

I saw a tweet in both English and French that demonstrated the best use for the 280 characters.

"Writer"... yeah. OK.

Twitards. When simply going full retard isn't nearly enough.

TL;DR version:
"Brevity is the soul of wit."
140-char limit demanded discipline.
280 will make writers sloppy.
Get off my lawn, Millennials!

The extra space will just be spent on hashtags anyway.
 
2017-11-08 05:12:16 AM  
one is too many.
 
2017-11-08 07:22:01 AM  
Here's why 140 characters is all you need (1/53)
