Why limit this text area to 97 characters, instead of 140?

I know that fitting text into available space (or vice versa) is one of the big challenges of GOOD web design, but it seems that on Twitter, where you're GUARANTEED that a message won't be longer than 140 characters, it would be a no brainer to be able to display an entire tweet, without having to truncate it at all...
