The editorial team has introduced a limit of 150 words for posts relating to news stories on the Road Safety GB newsfeed. The limit has been introduced as a pilot in the first instance.
Nick Rawlings, editor of the Road Safety GB newsfeed, said: “We are all for free speech and encourage all of our readers to get involved by posting comments on our website.
“However, we are mindful that it is a newsfeed, not a research or academic forum, and we want to keep the nature of posts light and easily digestible.
“We feel that excessively long posts slow down the pace of debate and can put off some readers who may otherwise like to get involved.
“We’re asking contributors to keep their posts to around 150 words and will monitor how this works. If successful we will implement the limit on a permanent basis.”
