Famous Writers Are Calling Out Twitter and We’re Grabbing Popcorn for the Show

Twitter apparently made the grave mistake of…doubling its character limit to 280. I’m not sure how they expected users to react, but many are pissed.


The update, which was implemented on November 7th, was met with criticism for limiting the inventive and unique nature of the social media platform. As more and more social networks are stealing each other’s features and essentially morphing into copycat networks, the limited character number has made Twitter standout until now.


Among these angry critics happen to be some very famous and familiar faces. J. K. Rowling was among the earliest critics, publishing this tweet just one day after the change.
