Twitter’s maximum tweet length offers finally been raised to 280 characters. For some users, this is extremely exciting. For others, it’s the worst issue ever to hit the Internet.  

If you’re in the latter category, most likely in luck. Our friends at Slate have developed a new Chrome expansion called “140” that will help you blissfully disregard the new Twitter for as long as you’d like.  

The extension will cut each tweet on your feed down to 140 characters, and will restrict your twitter posts to the old limit as well. You are able to download it straight from the Stainless- Web Store.
