President Donald Trump is reportedly concerned that the larger character limit on Twitter will reveal his stupidity once and for all. Twitter announced today that they are increasing their current character limit from 140 to 280, effectively giving users twice the scope to share their opinions with the world.
While for many of us, the larger limit means we don’t have to obsess over every single letter in our carefully crafted tweets, Trump has confided to some of his advisors that he risks making a fool of himself on the public platform. Up until now, apparently he believes that he has expertly managed his social media presence and portrayed the kind of image appropriate for a person holding such a high office.
A Trump insider has told The Watsonia Bugle, “Old Donny boy reckons he can nail a well-worded 140-character tweet but now has genuine concerns about the larger tweet size. It’s the first concession he’s ever given to the fact that he might realise he’s being a bit of a jerk.”
