Folks are busy, beaucoup overbooked. Being concise, cutting to the chase saves everyone time on twitter, any media stream for engagement. We use to the max whatever level the bar is lifted or lowered to for quality not quantity. When craigslist took away links, the sky did not fall and you re-group, re-invent. We're REALTORS.. wearing the blue and gold hardest working letter in the entire alphabet right?  RRrrrrrrrrr.

I love this! When Twitter first announced this, I started counting the days:) I happen to love Twitter. I was one of the very first people on Twitter, it was so much fun back then although frustrating to tweet from a blackberry phone!!! 

I have made many good contacts via Twitter. 

I read these comments here with most of them missing the point of Twitter. 

Twitter happens to be an actual ranking signal for the google bots. In other words, Twitter is great for SEO and with more characters it will make it even better to get more semantical content in. 

So when people say they are not using it because they don't like it,  I think , and so? Use it for SEO. It is free, it is a strong link back that counts.

real estate and inner most thoughts.

Don't see them appearing in the same twit.

I predict those on the twit river will go over the waterfall of 'appropriate remorse' or 'entitlement' and the crash at the bottom will be spectacular!

Be aware, with more characters to type and more characters to read, twit has effectively doubled their shelf space in the SM marketplace.

Either FB loses or more employers suffer loss of productivity as they pay their employees to be twits by meeting payroll as employees double their paid time on SM.
