    Personally, I think 140 characters is far to constrained, even for micro-debating.

    Let me rephrase that question, "Can you truly express yourself?"

    There is absolutely no opinion, no expression, no state of mind that requires more than 140 characters to convey. I think.

    No, it's easy.

    Internet, food, sleep.

    Personally I think it helps to hurry people along to the point instead of unnecessary explanation and context. No time for that these days.

    I disagree. Some books are states of mind in themselves. Most books are over 140 characters.

    But succinctness is a skill that we all must learn. Take haikus, they express a lot with only a little.

    I can. If I cannot type, I shall express myself privately via the medium of interpretative dance. A video link would be less than 140 right?

    Succinctness is a virtue.
    But 140 characters is ****ing mental.

    I disagree and indeed think will see this a success and should be rolled out across the whole site in due course.

    Shorter, to the point messages are the way forward for young people with limited attention.

    One can always resort to multiple short messages should they wish to express more than would fit in 140 characters.

    Well personally I think you probably can't, I can't bear to be subject to such an arbitrary number and therefore to be cut off in mid senten

    No. When limited character usage, can't display full thought. If can get opinion in 140 characters then don't have worthwhile opinion.

    Report me and I'll get a warning but the more I think, the more it makes sense to stick to one message. Will improve vocabulary.
