Dave Winer on Twitter Pro?: “
A thread was started by Scoble who suggested, in a phone talk yesterday, that he would pay $10 a month for a Twitter that didn’t have the 140 character limit.”
Please god, no. I’d unsub within five minutes from anyone on Twitter posting longer than 140 characters.
Repeat after me: Twitter Is Not Blogging. I already have perfectly good RSS feeds which allow me to read anyone’s longer ramblings, including on my mobile phone. You already have the ability to use Twitter to send out a link to a longer post. If you cannot learn the value of brevity, then really, you’re not likely to have anything to say to me that’s so important it needs to pop up on my mobile.
(Note to others: This applies equally to people who split long posts over multiple Twitters. There is nothing you have to say to me that’s so important that I have to be interrupted by three SMS messages for it.)
