Uber, but for turtles.
Retweeted by Zach Dillon(2/2) Up until now I had no way to communicate thoughts that required more than the available 140 characters. Absolutely no way to do so.(1/2) As much as I've joked about the expanded 280 character limit on Twitter, I have to say I'm glad they finally made this change.

No one is saying, "I like the idea; I just wish I had more characters."I don't think the vitriol will decrease just because each side has the ability to add more context. That problem has deeper roots.There's a certain elegance to a strict character limit -- forces editing and more careful word choice. More characters != more clarity. @peter So... 300 characters then?
