Twitter announced yesterday that subscribers of their Twitter blue service can now tweet way more than normal - a full 280 characters, to be exact. And while I"m all for it, because I ramble on way too much sometimes, I can't help but laugh at some of the memes about the new feature. Twitter Adds 280 Character Tweets for Twitter Blue Subscribers Anywho, here is the official announcement from Twitter, yes the odd capitalization (or lack thereof) is on their end.
