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.
In case you missed it, Twitter rolled out its new 280 character limit to nearly every user this week.

A lot of people have celebrated the news in the best way possible: with jokes! Take Cookie Monster, for instance:

Some people, however, are not super thrilled about the new development. Namely, Internet darling Chrissy Teigen.
I will NEVER use 280 characters nor will I favorite or retweet a tweet with them. THIS IS MY FIGHT SONG— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1510108113.0
But then, Teigen soon appeared to crumble under the pressure.
Maybe I could get used to this extra characters thing.— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1510124683.0
Alas, Teigen's boycott was apparently not meant to be.
I'm horrible at fighting the system. That was like...a two hour boycott— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1510124921.0
