On Tuesday evening, Twitter announced that after a brief trial it had decided to roll out a 280-character limit for all Twitter users. This doubled the original (and better) character limit of 140 that Twitter made its name enforcing, and also caused most of Twitter to lose its collective shit. Here are just some of the people who demonstrated this:
9. About 10 minutes after the expanded character count was rolled out to everyone, a lot of people just started tweeting out their favourite lines from movies and songs.
13. And then others just lost it.
21. Twitter has 280 characters now. That's just how it is. Embrace it. Love it. Adapt or die. The transformation is... complete.
