Twitter is extending messages to 280 characters, but tweeter-in-chief Donald Trump won’t be a part of the group beta testing the new feature. And that amazed “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.
“Twitter is this whole thing,” Colbert said. “Trump and Twitter go together like Nazis and Tiki torches.”
But Colbert was relieved to hear that Trump was stuck with 140 characters because that will keep some honesty in the president’s tweets.
