You can now see and create line breaks from Twitter's web app. Users tweeting from the website will be able to order their 140 characters as they so choose, a privilege that has — somewhat surprisingly — been limited to desktop and mobile apps. Considering Twitter's continued move away from its desktop apps, it isn't surprising to see the company attempt to mimic functionality. Technically, the web app has always allowed people to tweet with line breaks, but the interface has not displayed the line breaks until today. The official Twitter account took advantage of its newfound freedom to publish a haiku, though we fear others may not be so graceful when using the feature.
