Twitter Will Stop Counting Photos, Links in 140-Character Limit

  • Twitter users can now compose longer tweets as the micro-blogging site intends to stop counting photos and
    links against the 140-character limit.
  • Attaching links and photos currently strikes out 23 and 24 characters respectively off a tweet’s character count which often requires thinking in unconventional ways to convey what you mean in your tweet.
  • The 140-character limit has been around as long as Twitter. This way, Jack Dorsey can stay true to his promise of not increasing Twitter’s character limit. The change looks more tuned in comparison to earlier reports by Twitter to increase the 140-character limit to 10,000.
