Give me a break, Twitter: Breaking 140

How much more can you people take?! This ludicrous 140-character limit is the pits and a half. Sure, it was all about SMS integration back when SMS was more than just a megaphone for your carrier to tell you you've used up all your 4G. Now, everybody uses Telegram or Messenger or WhatsApp or SnapChat or something. SMS wasn't the solution and Twitter sure as hell ain't doing anyone any favors by desperately clinging to that long dead horse. 

Oops! Your tweet is too long. You'll have to be more creative.

That's just a cop out. Grow up, Twitter! You figured it out for DMs, now do it for regular tweets. You don't have to open the floodgates, just make the limit 500 or something. 140 is insane!
