Today, Twitter rolled out a new feature for subscribed users: they can post 4,000 character long tweets now.
But what if I don’t want to read long blog posts on a micro-blogging site? What if I’d rather not deal with long-winded assholes clogging up the feed? I guess I don’t have a choice, except, of course, that I’ll instantly block anyone who posts a treatise.
Worse still, though, I just got this message:
Oh no! I must have been chattering up a storm today. Got carried away. I just couldn’t shut up. Supposedly, the limit is 2400 tweets/day. But I’ve been tied up in lab and classes all day! How could I have done that?
So I looked to see how much ol’ blabbermouth PZ had babbled today.
It was 6 tweets, and that broke Twitter’s capacity.
OK, that’s fine, I can switch to my Mastodon account and go crazy. Maybe I’ll post 8 times today. 10 times if I feel like flooring the accelerator.
