Twitter Testing 280 Character Limit

Twitter today announced that it is going to “try out” a longer character limit. If successful, it will double the current 140-character limit to 280 characters. This will be rolled out to “only available to a small group” of users at a time and they won’t roll it out to everyone until they are sure it works. Those who get to test this feature will be selected at random/

To be honest, I can’t decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I guess we’ll have to see when a critical mass of users gets this new feature.
