    They've been deleting many big twitter accounts in past few months. So I'd say don't be surprised if your account is gone after you wake up!

    Curious now what this means for the long and short term?

    Time to step back as the smoke settles? Anyone have any thoughts?

    Cool to hear everyone's thoughts about this. I agree @avi619, this is definitely done to try and shoot their stock price up a bit, but ... really? It's a pretty lame move for a company trying to compete with FB, IG etc. Even when they announce things like removing the DM char limit, it's a pretty minuscule tiny move in my opinion, not really innovative?!

    I agree. But at the same time, I'd think this would bring an increase in spammy activity, so they might clamp down in some other way on spam activity. Possibly be stricter about daily following/unfollowing, DMs, spam links, or whatever.

    I can appreciate this for IM, but I wonder what the rationale is. Does any real user really care to follow what 2000+ people have to say at any given time?
