So when Twitter announced on Tuesday that it’s trialing 280 character tweets, some people couldn’t help but feel that the soul of Twitter is in danger.
While the change is only available to a small group at the moment, people certainly have an opinion about the new development.

Twitter (140 characters): “Hey guys, I’m Vijay”
Twitter (280 characters): “Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, poora naam. Baap ka naam Dinanath Chauhan. Maa ka naam Suhasini Chauhan. Gaon Mandwa. Umar 36 saal, 9 mahina, 8 din, aye aur yeh solva ghanta chaalu hai.”

Twitter is going from 140 characters to 280 characters. That’s the reverse of what happened in Game Of Thrones.

Koi Jo Mila To Mujhe Aisa Lagta Tha Jaise Meri Saari Dumiya Mein Geeton Ki Rut Aur Rangon Ki Barkha Hai Khushboo Ki Aandhi Hai Bheki Hui Si Ab Saari Fizaayein Hai Mahki Hui Si Ab Saari Havaayein Khoyi Hui Si Ab Saari Dishaayein Hai Badli Hui Si Ab Saari Adaayein Hai Jaagi Umange.

Twitter allowing #280characters? BAD! I’ve never had a thought or idea that takes more than 140 characters.
