Twitter could soon stop counting links and photos against your character limit
Twitter will reportedly stop counting links and photos as part of the 140-character limit for tweets, giving people a little more room to express themselves. Both links and photos currently take up a significant number of characters per post.
According to Bloomberg, this change could come soon:
Twitter has been experimenting with different methods for increasing the flexibility of the service. After increasing the character limit in direct messages to 10,000, it was reported that it would do the same to standard tweets. CEO Jack Dorsey later denied the move, calling the 140-character limit a "good constraint."
