New English GCSE to require all answers to be less than 140-characters

Efforts to modernise the dated GCSE English syllabus have been announced by the Department for Education today. All GCSE English answers will be required to adhere to the 140-character limit to prepare students for a future in social media.

‘In this age of austerity, it is important that students learn to limit their messages to just one text, and are able to effectively communicate their daily activities in a Twitter-acceptable format,’ said a spokesman for the DfE.

He added: ‘If they aren’t able to anonymously and inhumanely troll innocent people in under 140-characters, then what sort of future do they have?’
