I think this quotation really says a lot about how far we’ve come as a society:
10 per cent may seem insignificant but as Twitter proved with the social unrest in Iran, every tweet counts. This change has the potential to be extremely empowering.
That’s from “Tech commentator Charles Leadbeater” in an article about Twitter’s plans to gradually phase in a REVOLUTIONARY new feature: 14 more characters per tweet. Yes. That’s right. Fourteen Characters.
Who knows, maybe some day we’ll be able to send multiple paragraphs through cyberspace… I can’t wait.
Then again, maybe the real money is headed in the other direction…
