I mean, this doesn't effect me often, but when it does... I mean hey, losing a message you typed out that was over 10,000 characters, if you type 100wpm and the average word is 5 letters, that's 500characters per minute, or twenty minutes of non stop typing. Only to be given an error message, then having your text disappear?
I mean hey, I visit places like Voat rather than Twitter because I can actually expand on what I think. I can't really think of why it would be limited in the first place. Spam doesn't make sense because they can just make multiple comments, and one really long comment is easier to hide than multiple short ones? Is it some variety of back end issue where limiting them to 10,000 characters places all posts within a set range thus making them easier to manage computationally?
It's really aggravating caring about a topic enough that you'll spend twenty minutes writing about it only to have it disappear.
