This is a bad idea and whoever came up with it should not have.
Twitter is building a new product that will allow users to share tweets that are longer than the company’s 140-character limit, according to multiple people familiar with the company’s plans.
It’s unclear what the product will look like, but sources say it would enable Twitter users to publish long-form content to the service. Users can already tweet out blocks of text with products like OneShot, but those are simply images, not actual text published on Twitter. A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment.
If Twitter has done nothing else, it has done this: it has taught many people how to be mercifully brief in their commentary. It has even taught some of them to be concise – and, dare I say, even clear. Reversing that seems unwise.
