Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently suggested that Twitter is considering removing the 140 character limit, which will take away the only thing that makes twitter unique in the Social Media world.
Hashtags? Instagram and Facebook both have them. Celebrity follows, interaction with people you don’t know? Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook, and Snapchat, and Reddit, to name a few. Twitter is really good for breaking news, true, but they aren’t a news app. They are the fun, short message social media platform that used hashtags first (and, undeniably, the most effectively).
But now, if Twitter is truly removing the only thing to make it unique, it’s going to become diet Facebook. It’s already a lighter shade of blue for that “low calorie” social media flavor.
