Steve Hakusa commented on EMERGENCY-27:

From https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/emergency-cap/download.php/53640/Aproved%20CAP%20SC%20Meeting%20Notes%207-14-14.doc

Consensus was to make the change in the document for the suggested number to be changed from 160 to 140 characters.  It was further noted that a statement should be added to the Best Practices guide.
