  1. The things that never changed on Twitter is the number of characters allowed per tweet. From the beginning until now users could only tweet to a maximum of 140 characters. I do not know why Twitter never change this, Twitter may want to keep it as the characteristic/trademark that distinguishes it from other social media sites.

  2. Its a good one!!! nice work
