The brilliance of 140 characters

I was writing a big fat #rant on my favourite broadcast platform twitter today, as I have attempted many times and to my now delight, I stopped in my tracks when I tried to reduce that #rant several times into 140 characters. I think the limit on characters might have just saved me from saying something that might have made me look a bit stupid (not that it will stop me from trying again) as I could not say what I wanted to say in 140 characters and it was becoming too frustrating trying to do so, ultimately allowing me to forget about my #rant and move along. Brilliant way to edit all the noise!
