TwitlongerA few days ago an interesting tweet came up from someone I was following.  It started off normally, and had a link to the rest of it, which isn’t anything out of the ordinary.  The link I assumed would take me to a blog posting where the rest of the author’s message would be displayed, but it wasn’t.  It led me to Twitlonger.com, a new site for when 140 characters just isn’t enough.

Because of the Twitter open API, fun little projects like this one pop up.  Sometimes, 140 characters isn’t enough and you need 200 or 300 to get your message across, but it isn’t important enough to make a blog posting about.

Twitlonger defeats the sole purpose of Twitter by allowing more than 140 characters, which is most of the reason why Twitter has caught on so fast, but I think for certain instances, it works well.
