Manchester City post incredible tweet after Twitter increases to 280 characters
Manchester City took full advantage of Twitter increasing the character limit to 280 characters by recalling the greatest moment in the club’s history.
Every Twitter user can now tweet with 280 characters, therefore, rants are more likely to come from one tweet than a thread — as done previously.
Football clubs from around the globe have attempted to make their first 280-character tweet one to remember, and City have certainly achieved that. Unfortunately for those that follow rivals Manchester United, that is.
The club simply reminisced that moment when Sergio Aguero won the Premier League in the last minute against Queens Park Rangers.
280 characters means we can now go...— Manchester City (@ManCity) 8 November 2017
Manchester United, on the other hand, had a night trying to make a 280-character tweet popular. One of the clubs most used hashtags on match days is #DaveSaves but following the increase, United expanded that slogan to #DavidSaves.
However, it didn’t really catch on among supporters, who requested the club to retract their decision to change the slogan.
You can see from the contrast of reactions that City’s social media team did a much better job than those working down Sir Matt Busby Way.
Is there a Twitter Premier League trophy? Not yet, anyway.
