1. Why?

I have come to the inescapable conclusion that I was born far too early. I think that Twitter should allow 1001 characters in posts, and this is probably a function of the fact that I did not start communicating when only 140 were possible. I can imagine that anyone who started communicating when 140 characters was indeed the maximum limit (and since Twitter and even shorter version social media are now the common ways to communicate) is probably absolutely delighted by the largesse shown by the Californian media company in extending the limit to 275. However, to someone who, like me, has been around long enough to have used emails, phone calls, faxes and even letters, the current limit can at times seem far too short. And this is the reason why I have decided to write this blog. To illustrate my strongly held belief that Twitter should allow posts of 1001 characters, and I will do that by writing 1001 posts of 1001 characters or less, written in English rather than Twitterish.
