So many people miss the point of Twitter. I see people tweeting War & Peace in 20 parts. That's not how it's supposed to work. PS: this=140.

They said they were going to do that 6+ months ago, then decided not to. I'll wait and see. It really isn't needed, and I doubt people will start tweeting 280 words just because they can. @, #, and links make it easier to stay under 140.

I did hear the news but also recall the company was considering this in the past -- I "use" Twitter primarily to share AR blog posts.  My participation beyond that has been pretty limited and can't say it will change my usage.

Fred Griffin - the initial purpose was to say everything in 140 characters - and now they realize, after so many years, that 140 is not enough!

I see the need for a new APP!

It should be called TwitWave.

Any verbose writing fed into TwitWave will be parsed into 280 character twigs and robo fed to twit.

I very likely will continue to USE and ABUSE twit, but like always, will spend no time In Twitsville.
