Twitter has divided it's users over-night, after announcing they'll be trialing a doubled character limit
Currently, most users only have 140 characters in which to fit their tweet into, but now the social network has revealed a small handful will have 280 characters to play with.
Can’t fit your Tweet into 140 characters? 🤔— Twitter (@Twitter) September 26, 2017
We’re trying something new with a small group, and increasing the character limit to 280! Excited about the possibilities? Read our blog to find out how it all adds up. 👇https://t.co/C6hjsB9nbL
Needless to say, the people who are least happy about the change are Twitter's own users, with one particular person the centre of attention.

Did Twitter really not think this #280characters thing through? Don't give Donald Trump extra space to start wars or embarrass us 🤦🏻♀️— Amanda K (@Wanderlust1124) September 27, 2017
Twitter is increasing the character limit to 280 which means Trump will have twice the room to say four times as many idiotic statements.— Elton Castee (@EltonCastee) September 27, 2017
