Here’s Why Chrissy Teigen Is Boycotting Twitter’s New 280 Character Limit

Share on Facebook

Has Twitter gone mad? We thought they had things pretty much figured out, but then they did something shocking. They gave everyone the ability to tweet using 280 characters! Do they even realize how many words that is? It’s this long, guys. This paragraph could have been a tweet.

Apparently, Chrissy Teigen isn’t super happy about it.

That’s right, Twitter just became twice as informative, funny, or annoying (depending on who you’re following). What a time to be alive!

That guy clearly knows what he’s doing. As far as we’re concerned, he should have had 280 cookies/characters to tweet with from the very beginning.

She shared a tweet claiming to be staunchly anti-280 characters. You want her attention? You’re gonna have to get it in 140 characters (or fewer). And honestly, we kinda get it. Twitter can be a nasty place (when it’s not full of hilarious memes).

And we mean soon. Her next tweet occurred not even five hours later. Which is just enough time to come across enough hilarious 280-character tweets and realize that maybe — just maybe — it’s actually a good thing.

On the bright side, we can now apparently look forward to twice as much hilarious content from Teigen. And that, friends, is really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really great news.
