Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:
This is an interesting article that came to me by way of my friend and fellow technical communicator, Barrie Byron. Some of these metrics are ones I could’ve guessed, and some are surprises to me. It’s an interesting read. I know for myself, I’d have a hard time adhering to these "rules".

Interesting, indeed. I often use every character Twitter allows. Not any more! Thanks, Danielle.
Oh heck, I’m still going to use all 140 characters! Often the message is 100 characters or less, and the rest are hashtags (like #stc14 @marciarjohnston take up 22 characters already).
Ah, that makes sense.
