BuzzFeed: Twitter Users Like Long Tweets More Than Short Ones

BuzzFeed: Twitter Users Like Long Tweets More Than Short Ones. “Given the deluge of complaints about Twitter’s 280-character limit when it debuted this fall, you’d think people would be ignoring the new, lengthier tweets. But that doesn’t appear to be the case. Early data shows tweets above 140 characters are being liked and retweeted at a rate approximately double that of their shorter counterparts. BuzzFeed News obtained the data from SocialFlow, a publishing tool used by approximately 300 major publishers including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.”
