Here’s the good news…..while tweets still have to be 140 characters or less, pictures and videos no longer eat into that total!!!!!
My thoughts exactly!
Twitter announced earlier this year the changes were coming and finally they’ve started to roll them out. The update means, GIFs, videos, pictures, polls and quoted tweets no longer count in that 140 character limit!
They even plan to cut twitter handles from the count but that is still in the “testing” phase right now! While the update is welcomed by users, many are still wondering when that “edit” function will appear?!
