Twitter have just announced that it is trialling longer character limits to help Users - increasing the number of characters you can use from 140 characters to 280 .

Is that a good thing?  I kind of thought the point was to be concise in your message. Although I am no great tweeter I like the discipline of the very short message. 

Certainly there is some discussion as you'd expect - check out the tweets alongside this post!  I must admit the first thing I thought was what carnage will Donald Trump be able to create now!

PS If you were not invited to trial longer tweets here is a way to hack Twitter so you too can use 280 characters.
