Twitter Tidbit

Quoting from Twitter.com website:

Why 140 characters?

SMS (i.e., texting on your phone) limits each message to 160 characters. Twitter takes that limit and reserves 20 characters for your username, leaving you 140 characters to play with. That’s how it started and we’ve stuck with it!

Thought that was interesting – HAD TO SHARE!! So that is the reason for only 140-characters!
