The #280 is of extremely common discussion on Twitter, so it'll be interesting to see how it plays out having 500 on this thing.

HOW DO THREADS WORK IN TOOTER? AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT QUESTION BECAUSE I LIKE FAKE BLOGGING.

@coryw Flantter does it interestingly - it starts the count down from 140, but if you exceed 140, shows you the count down from 500 instead.

@coryw the funny thing? aside from large influxes of young people, folk here don't really make much ado about 500.

@kellycrow It's an interesting difference. The 280 was a bit of a change on twitter, and for as hilarious as this sounds I already feel myself becoming wordier there.

@coryw same? I mean it really helps with the "blah blah blah 1/2" tweets where 2/2 is like, two words out of 140 cause you couldn't fit JUST TWO WORDS in the first tweet

@kellycrow I have still been trying to maintain brevity, which, I had to work at anyway, so it's not a very huge difference.

It appears to work well, although the process of actually writing the thread is a little bit of a shitshow, interface-wise, at least on the web client.
