It was very frustrating note to be able to publish more than a few hundred characters. I wanted to relay a very detailed note but coldnt publish it. Any way to adjust that ?
Looking into this further, the 140 characters is a global setting within the community; therefore cannot be changed on an individual basis. The character limit is set low similarly to Twitter or text messages for the purpose of short updates.
Where exactly are you trying to post your message? Was this as a status update, private message, or somewhere else?
It was a status update
Status Updates are limited to 140 characters. For longer notes, there is the ability to create personal blog posts. A blog summary will display in the activity stream, but will link to the full content.
hum ... weird limitation.
In my opinion this isn't the right decision. If we want to communication going we need to have the capability to develop an idea and not just throw out a few words. Setting a limit coudl make sense, but at least at a higher threshold, like 1,000 or 2,000 characters
take Chatter. you can express a lengthy idea there. I am puzzled on why it would make sense on Chatter and not GeoNet.
For longer messages, you have a few more choices like discussions and documents. Think of status updates as the Twitter of GeoNet.
