Comment (by dd32):

 If changing the database is an option, changing it to a TEXT field would
 be worth it. However, I'd personally lean away from that and bring up
 migrating links to Custom Post Types instead. For something that's had a
 255char limit for over 7 years, I don't see a great requirement or request
 to change that.

 I do like the suggested patch here of simply adding the maxlength HTML
 attribute, at least it prevents people from entering longer strings.
