Congrats! You’re about to receive a makeover.

On April 9, Twitter announced plans to roll out a new site design, and everyone seems to think the renovations look suspiciously like Facebook.

Among the updates, according to CNN:
  • much larger profile photo and header image
  • sort a person’s tweets based on photos, videos or replies to a conversation
  • tweets with the most retweets and replies will appear larger so they become easier to find

You’ll notice the folks at Twitter have no plans to increase the site’s 140-character limit. Why? Less is still more.

Can you condense your message as tightly as possible? Today’s culture rewards brevity and the people who can say a lot with a little.

To help everyone stay concise, I created an easy way to improve anything you write. In about three minutes, you will make your work read faster, look sharper and feel more authoritative.

If you’d like, print out the instructions below, save the page somewhere useful and refer to it the next time you draft a document.
