@mur2501 @thor @juliobiason Well, I think this is just gargrons opinion. He's the one that makes the decision for Mastodon, and he doesn't want to have messages longer than 500 characters and no one has been able to convince him otherwise yet.
I'm happy my instance supports 2500 characters. I have only run into that limit a few times.
