BEND BULLETIN: Jack Dorsey, co-founder and chief executive of Twitter announced Twitter rejected extended character limit.
“It’s staying. It’s a good constraint for us,” Dorsey said in the interview, which took place on the 10th birthday of Twitter. “It allows for of-the-moment brevity.”
Dorsey’s response — at an economical length of 81 characters — is likely to calm the hard-core base of Twitter supporters who have been vocally resistant to any major changes to the network.
