Stop Wasting Your Time With 280 Characters – Focus On This Instead

Guest post from Josh Gallant, Digital Marketing Strategist.

In case you haven’t heard, long-form tweeting now exists.

That is, if you consider 280 characters to be long-form. If you’re comparing that number with the 140 character cap of old, new-school tweets are going to seem like oversized college textbooks.

Ignore 140 of them.
