9 of the quickest reactions to Twitter's new 280 character limit

280 characters?!

TWITTER INTRODUCED A new character limit for posting tweets today.

Now, Twitter users can harass celebrities and share memes in 280 characters, as opposed to the previous 140 characters.

1. Despite a lot of users previously requesting the change, now that it’s in place, people don’t know what to do with themselves.

2. Even Ellen Degenres is struggling.

3. It does mean you can Tweet some rather important stuff in one go though – like Girls Aloud lyrics.

This is the word of the Lord.

4. I’d say Donald Trump is delighted.

How many times can you fit ‘covfefe’ into a tweet now?

5. Or maybe the people who work at Twitter are just massive Game Of Thrones fans.

6. Some reckon the increase won’t actually affect the quality of their tweets.

7. Others were not so easily convinced.

8. 280 characters isn’t THAT long, lads.

9. … Or is it?
