Duh! Where else would they go to react?
Ever since the rumours that Twitter will be extending the 140-character limit started floating around, Twitter users have been doing what they love to do: tweet and express their opinions.
Here are some of the reactions from around the little blue birdie’s nest:
Someone likes the idea
Totally cool with the 140 character limit going away! @jack

But Osarumen thinks it’s a bad idea
@twitter is slowly killing the quirks that gives it its appeal. Bad, bad idea to keep Facebook-ifying the service, in the $$$ chase.

We're here for a reason. You're burning the reason. 10000 characters won't make it look like twitter anymore. #SAVE140

The fun of twitter is the limited character stuff, reply anticipation & continuous short interaction. Increased character count is a No-No

Tough not to agree
10000 characters?! No Twitter. Just, no. Your beauty lies in brevity.

@twitter kindly be advised that a total of 10000 characters will drive your users away and invite more Social media Marketing.

What we said
Mark my words. Twitter want to go to 10000 characters in tweets so they can embed ads in them. Just watch.

Can't believe a social media company wouldn't think to crowdsource a major change in its platform #10000characters

If I wanted to be able to use 10000 characters to write endless inane drivel I'd just go and use Facebook
