First long-form tweet with 26,927 characters just dropped but Twitter users are giving it a hard pass.

Twitter will soon allow long-form tweets- ones that are longer than a thread and can be combined in one tweet. Elon Musk said the feature would be launched in early February in a tweet he posted last month. Tweets started from 140 characters, moved up to 240 characters, and then the thread option became available. Wondering what might a long-form tweet look like- how expansive it might be?

Twitter user Jane Manchun Wong posted a demo long-form tweet consisting of 26,927 characters. While it remains to be seen how people take to the new feature, the responses so far have been memes, liberal uses of the โ€˜I ainโ€™t reading all thatโ€™ memes and people saying they would be blocking anyone tweeting out more than five lines.

Recently, there was a similar reaction to the view count feature on Twitter, with users collectively giving it a hard pass. โ€œTwitter is rolling out View Count, so you can see how many times a tweet has been seen! This is normal for video,” Elon Musk had announced in a tweet. โ€œShows how much more alive Twitter is than it may seem, as over 90% of Twitter users read, but donโ€™t tweet, reply or like, as those are public actions,” he had added. He also stated that tweets are typically viewed 100 times more than they are liked.
