JK Rowling was among a whole host of authors slagging off Twitter’s decision to double its character limit to 280.
Twitter’s destroyed its USP. The whole point, for me, was how inventive people could be within that concise framework. #Twitter280characters

Which prompted this magical response, all within the old 140 character limit.
Guess who liked it? Of course he did.

Stephen King made a similar point to JK Rowling, but with extra brevity.
280 characters? Fuck that.
