Mac Pro is Dead:
Gruber's takes looking so good

> but one month into 280 Twitter, I have to say I don’t mind it much.

Duh. There wasn't anything wrong with 280, but it was different, and we can't have that!

What happened to Gruber's claim that Twiiter is so awesome because it limits your characters, forcing you to be concise?

There was nothing wrong with it. Just like there was nothing wrong with them introducing @mentions and #hastags as official features.

What was especially funny this time was the people whining the loudest about 280 chars were the ones who most regularly screenshot walls of text. That's multiple levels of dumb.

And despite my progressive leanings, it was cringeworthy reading all the people saying 280 chars wouldn't cure Nazism on Twitter, etc. Why one is related to the other boggles the mind.
