@chr Why did you up the character limit, if you don't mind me asking? User demand? Draconic whim?

@Canageek longstanding demand. i was getting messages about it every few weeks, and also kept hitting it myself sometimes

(also after i upped it on the downsides seemed less important)

> - (cybre only) raised the character limit to 1024

Yay!!! :blobcheer:

@chr Yaaaaayy! This is awesome!!

@tootapp Any chance we'll see a way to increase the default post limit in the Toot! app for instances?

@Alamantus @chr There is an unofficial API for instanced to tell clients the post limit which Toot will use.

@chr Thank you for all the work you put in here!
