Twitter "upgraded" so that everyone can now post up to 280 characters, rather than 140. I dislike this greatly, and here is why: The culture behind the limitations of Twitter force the user into a particular mindset. That mindset it broken with this increase in characters. The very culture of Twitter will now change. Whether that is for the better or worse, I do not know (nor really care) but it will no longer be what it was, and I, personally, liked what it was. That's one of the reasons I USED Twitter. Now it is one step closer to Facebook, and there's a reason (many) why I almost never visit my Facebook account.

Anyway, in the grand scheme this is rather meaningless, but I felt like saying something about it and this seemed a good place. :P Have a great day everyone!

I hear you JK. I don't plan on using all 280 characters now, but I'm glad that I can finish a tweet without leaving a few words or punctuation out to complete my thoughts. Still, I wish they wouldn't have upgraded the limit.

I haven't used the full 280 all willy nilly. Mostly just to be more complete and clear what I said. It is nice not having to edit/truncate what I said makes things more readable.

Also it has made The Simpsons Quotes Twitter I follow even better.

Someone used their 280 characters to quote one of Coach McGuirk's monologues from Home Movies and now I'm having a marathon of the whole series. (What is this power?)

Finally feeling better after the flu. This year's flu is no joke (or maybe I'm just getting old) so get the flu shot, people! It's not worth taking the chance! I was wrecked for days and days, could barely move.
