Twitter the social media giant which currently calculates photos and links as part of the 140-character limit for tweets, is going to exclude those allowing users to have more space. With this upgrading 140 characters will be entirely used for text only. It is surely a bonus for Twitteratis to express their views and opinions. Bloomberg report cracked this news but twitter has yet to make a public announcement.
Twitter Plans to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit
Although it is a tiny step in a larger plan to give users more flexibility on twitter. In January the Chief Executive Officers Jack Dorsey said that they are looking for the new ways to make twitter more user friendly. Therefore the company is going to experiment many new features.
In March, many reports regarding Twitter revealed that it was considering to increase its 140-character limit to 10,000-character restriction but the CEO Jack Dorsey denied the change and said:
“It’s staying. It’s a good constraint for us and it allows for of-the-moment brevity.”
So Twitteratis no need to upload screenshots of longer text and or send many tweets one after the other to tell a story. Just wait for few more days and enjoy the bonus of getting more space for adding text.
