Tweeting is a great way to quickly communicate with people, but a growing conversation can be quickly stunted due to the usernames being included in your character count.  Thank goodness for yesterday's announcement.

You've now got room for a few more words, so what will you do with them?

  • Not worry about using less than perfect language?
  • put some more context to the conversation?
  • say what you really mean?

The real strengths of social media is being able to share knowledge, to help people and to build relationships. Although this Twitter update may only add a few more characters, it will definitely help.

Have a great weekend.
