Like a lot of people, I joined Twitter years and ago and I rarely, if ever, tweet anything of actual importance. A lot of the tweets I see on my feed offer the same value as fart jokes, and I also see quite a bit of literal fart jokes. That’s okay, though, because at the Twitter limit of 140 characters they’re super easy to breeze through.

That may change, and instead of 140-character fart jokes, we may soon be seeing 10,000-character fart jokes. That’s the number that Twitter is considering raising it to, and CEO Jack Dorsey has come out in favor of longer tweets and has almost assured us that it’s going to happen. He cites the popular trend of tweeting screenshots of text and favors turning them into actual text.

At the same time, he claims to love Twitter’s 140-character limit for the creativity that it inspires, and he’s not wrong. The strict limitations can lead to immaculately-worded posts in the right hands, and getting rid of those limitations could spell doom for ramblers such as myself.

Dorsey claims that “the majority of tweets will always be short and sweet,” but if they get rid of that limitation, that’s pretty much out of his control. Prepare for longer tweets, because Dorsey ends his statement by saying that “tweetstorms” will never go away, whatever the hell those are.
