Original tweet by Jack Dorsey, Twitter, CEO: Here
And by focusing on conversation and messaging, the majority of tweets will always be short and sweet and conversational!
We’re not going to be shy about building more utility and power into Twitter for people. As long as we’re consistent with what people want to do, we’re going to explore it.
As long as that feature doesn’t get in the way of the core product feature, which in my opinion, is brevity. If I wanted a feed that pushed me long-form content, I’d go look for Medium.
To me, the best thing about Twitter (I’ve found myself going back to it and engaging on it), is that it clearly distills thought from people, making us choose our words better. Too many people think that more words means more meaning. But, If it doesn’t fit a tweet, it’s not worth saying.
At least on a medium like Twitter.
