Have you ever found yourself stuck in a "Twitter canoe"? The term refers to the frustrating dead-end effect of replying to users on Twitter, wherein the users' handles take up most of the allotted 140 characters. More often then not, this ends up curbing a conversation that might have continued given more space, which can be frustrating for PR pros who use Twitter for relationship-building. The good news: Twitter is testing a character-freeing update that could put an end to the annoyance.
