Twitter Makes Big Changes

Twitter ChangesIs it time to celebrate?   Twitter has made a big change!

After limiting users to 140 characters (including web links and photos) since its inception, they now have eliminated counting the characters in links and photos for posts.  This means you can have more words in your message!

The Tweet has evolved from a simple 140-character text message to a rich canvas for creative expression featuring photos, videos, hashtags, Vines, and more.

Twitter recently added the ability to poll your community, react quickly and cleverly with GIFs, and share and enjoy Periscope broadcasts in Tweets.

Now, with the recent Twitter change, you can do even more.   Those links and photos won’t count toward your 140 characters, so for instance, @names in replies and media attachments (like photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) no longer “use up” valuable characters.

Here is a roundup of the changes:

  • Replies: When replying to a Tweet, @names no longer count toward the 140-character count.
  • Media attachments: When you add attachments like photos, GIFs, videos, polls, or Quote Tweets, they no longer count as characters within your Tweet.
  • Retweet and Quote Tweet yourself: A retweet button on your own Tweets has been activated.

These changes are gradually being released but I’m starting to see them on some Twitter accounts.  So it is only a matter of days till everyone has these new features.

These features will make Twitter even easier to use.  So I’m happy.  What do you think of the changes?
