On Tuesday, Twitter announced that the behemoth social site will officially double the number of characters available to all users for tweets, increasing them from 140-characters to 280. Twitter began testing the 280-character limit in September among a small group of users but now everyone will be able to tweet longer comments. This means the Tweeter-in-Chief can lash out at his critics in longer rants. Or, he can try to provoke a war with North Korea in 280 characters now and use fake news tweets to rant against the media with typo-filled statements. What this means is that the Twitter-addicted so-called president will never shut up now since he’s made the social site his safe space.
Twitter users were not pleased.
…and the entire world waits in terror for Trump’s first 280 character tweet…

So, does anyone else worry that 280 character tweets just mean that Trump rants will be twice as long? 🙁

Place your bets for how many spelling errors Trump will manage to fit into his first 280 character tweet

It’s official! Twitter about to be 280 character! I’m muting Trump.

Twitter’s new 280 character policy means I can type FUCK TRUMP 31 times instead 15. Well done Twitter. Oh, and FUCK TRUMP.

Can’t wait for the first 280 character Trump tweet. Did anyone at Twitter consider the national security implications? For real?

Goddamnit. We all have a 280-character Twitter, even Trump.

And Trump tweets just became twice as stupid.
Hello, 280: Twitter doubles character count on tweets… https://t.co/mFkr0AJLFs

And here are just a few of the comments in a thread under an article on The Hill:
I did think of an upside to this news. The former reality show star can implicate himself even further in his shady dealings while Special Counsel Robert Mueller takes notes.
