Jack Dorsey designed the word Twitter in 2006 after he noticed people sending short messages to each other wanting to know about each other’s status.
Today Twitter has covered 200 million people who communicate in an orderly, simple fashion unlike that noisy Facebook messages- in short one is devoid of target ads, friends request and flippant messages from unknown folks!!! .
However Twitter’s usage is limited because of fewer visitors and alarming outrages which is making it unprofitable. Ubbermedia the company behind mobile twitter is planning to create a microblogging network, one that may do away with the famous 140 character limit. Should twitters move to a town with fewer regulations so that Jacks dream does not die an early death???
Users believe that the 140 characters limit is irritating and does not allow them to post their entire status or mood. Other social media site like “Tumblr” seems to be more appealing. Even Facebook has a higher limit. Thus, if twitter wants to increase its fan following, the primary step for “Jack Dorsey” is to do away with this “character limit” or at least expand it.
