    Twitter has just cramped out some space to fit its miniature packer , and we are not really ready for it.

    In the recent blog post published by Twitter , they made sure that we need some extra wording , while posting a post on twitter .

    " Our research shows that the character limit is major cause of frustration among people tweeting in english ,when people won't have to cram their thoughts into this small space , they might just be more of a human instead of a bots" .

    Many times , when we are posting it on twitter, their 140 character limitations , break out sentences into stupid end , it happens with me almost all the times , when i try to post the sentence on twitter .

    What Exactly Was There A Limit At First Space ?

    When the world was total chaos , that is at the starting phase when twitter has just been introduced and there were not much competitors , twitter send the normal text message which was 160 character , which is combination of 140 as limit for sentences and 20 for damn username .

    But due to people discovery , suddenly the words got more power and is becoming meaningful .

    So at that time also , twitter played his role , thereby increasing the limit to 10000 characters in 2015 .

    Now lets think of twitter becoming Facebook , and lots of words are becoming fluffy . Thank to Jack Dorsey for not making it Facebook .

    Why They Want To Change It Now ?

    Yuppie , you are so happy !! Finally twitter has increased its limit . But oh ohhh... limits are just arbitrary frame for references that can change from time to time and from mindset to mindset .

    We are human beings and we can limit our thought for expressing it on twitter , and at the very next movement , we realise that you need to break the text .

    How sad it is ?

    So instead of being happy with it , you have to ultimately focus on how to fit your thoughts within that constraint . Twitter might also be thinking all these , but why they did all these years ?

    Why Isn't It Working Anymore ?

    Even twitter don't know it . Twitter itself has twitted " We won't now until the updates got live !" Really nice twitter you are learning from us !!

    What's Next ?

    Well we are yet to discover that .whether it will make the steeples more active to what !
