Twitter has decided to test out 280 character limits on tweets instead of the usual 140!
At this point it’s just a TEST among some users and the reactions are mixed….
Wow, thank you @Twitter. I was chosen as one of the select people who are able to use #280characters. I don't know what to do with all of this power, but I have no choice but to keep talking. RT if this tweet was way too long because 280 characters should be for Facebook.— Darren Kavinoky (@DarrenKavinoky) September 27, 2017

For a moment it look like John Mayer was on the lucky list….
This is amazing. I got 280 characters. But I’m gonna still keep it to 140 for a while, to be fair to everyone else.— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) September 27, 2017
but then tweeted he was just kidding…
Guys, I’m sorry. I lied to you. I don’t have 280 characters. I got all caught up in the excitement, and I guess I just wanted you to like m— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) September 27, 2017
Now even if you DON’T have the 280 characters yet you can get it, it just sounds like a bit of work.
