The history of Twitter messing with its character count, in under 280 characters

Longer tweets were always coming. Eventually.

’06: Twitter debuts w/140-char limit

06–11: You can lengthen tweets, but why tho

12–15: Tweets are longer! Psych. Then sometimes 117 chars. Then 140 again. DM limit gone; tweets next?

16–mid-’17: We’re doing it! But not. Still no.

NOW: Freak out or nah?
