Twitter has started allowing a handful of its users to post tweets of 280 characters — double its longstanding 140 character length.
But because only a “small group” of users is part of the trial, everyone else left out of the party is jealous as heck.
After the announcement, Ellen Degeneres promptly tweeted this funny:
People who took her seriously responded to her joke by being incredibly salty:
Dan Katz, of Bar Stool sports, has perhaps encapsulated exactly what everyone’s jealous of, in this tweet announcing he’s part of the blessed few:
Oh shit I was selected as one of the special ones to tweet in 280 characters. HAHAHA suck it losers, I feel like God right now. Wait, I’m not done, I would also like to say that all these words I’m typing right now are useless and I wasted them just because I CAN. These too, lmao

The rest of us lowly tweeters might take comfort in some of the reactions that have brewed over the hours since the news broke.
Some are taking out their rage at being left out by hating on Twitter itself. By tweeting about it.
Some say you don’t even need more characters.
Meanwhile, others just want to be able to edit their tweets.
Guess you can’t win ’em all.
