Couple of months back, it was rumored that twitter was working towards expanding tweet limit. It was stated that twitter hopes to increase the limit to about 10,000 characters and most users didn’t take that well.
Although that hasn’t come to reality (we ain’t even sure it will) but the social media company today, announced that certain adjustments is being put in place.
The social media company stated that certain parts of a message will no longer count towards the 140 character limit which should give room for more realistic characters.
According to twitter, use of @names when composing or replying a tweet, will no longer count. Media attachments such as photos, GIFs, Videos, Polls and Quote tweets will no longer take part in the character count as well.
Twitter says the changes will be taking place over the coming months. That means, the changes may be rolled out in stages. So, if you don’t see the change soon enough, relax, it will still get to you.
