Recode: Twitter is testing a big change: Doubling the length of tweets from 140 to 280 characters. “Twitter’s iconic 140-character limit for tweets may be on the way out. In the hope that it will encourage more people to post, Twitter is doubling the number of characters that some users get for a tweet. The test means that a small group of Twitter users will now get 280 characters per tweet instead of the traditional 140 characters.” So now Twitter will apply its inconsistent and ridiculous policies to twice as many characters at a time! Yay!
