Too Long; Didn't Read

Does Column Width of 80 Make Sense in 2019? Does column width of 80 make sense in the age of small monitors? It also makes your code unnecessary long, then it actually is. I would say that consistency is nice and you must go for it but 80 or even 100 is too short. Our modern widescreen high definition LCD monitors can easily handle more. It is more readable than the excessive wrapping because I personally find it much harder to read a wrapped line than just seeing the whole.thing in one line.
