Your Twitter feed is about to get a lot more obnoxious thanks to a new feature added to the social network today: support for line breaks.
This now allows users to tweet messages that are extremely long verticall, as demonstrated by my tweet here. In theory, a single tweet could now easily take up your entire screen.
We're not sure why Twitter would support line breaks—or at least multiple line breaks. But the good news is that they may not intrude on many users: third-party clients don't show line breaks in tweets (yet) and embeddable tweets also don't show off the breaks. Unfortunately, however, Twitter's mobile apps do readily support this new feature.
