After Twitter announced their test project of doubling up their tweet character limit from 140 to 280, the microblogging site has been overflowing with reactions. The hashtag #280 has been trending ever since Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey tweeted about the trial run. In his tweet, Dorsey stated that even though the change is small, it was a big move for the Twitter as they were going to give more space to people to express themselves on the platform. He also explained that the choice of 140 characters was ‘arbitrarily based on the 160 character SMS limit’ and limited people from tweeting.

Many Twitter users were not very happy with the change and tweeted about other bigger changes the social media platform could have made instead.

Making a mash-up of popular dialogues from Bollywood movies, people described how they felt about the change.
