Twitters longer Tweets are finally here

Twitter logoTwitter may have removed the 140 character limit from Direct Messages, but its still holding firm on this limit for regular tweets. There has been no indication from the company so far to suggest that it will even consider removing the limit that has been there since day one. However, Twitter is taking steps to enable users to get the most out of the microblogging network. Twitters longer tweets have finally been launched today, and no, they dont go beyond 140 characters.

Twitter has come up with a different way to enable us to shoot longer tweets while being confined to that 140 character limit. Its simply going to stop counting a lot of things against the limit.

Starting today, attachments like photos, videos, GIFs, and polls no longer count against the tweet limit. Links to quoted tweets will also not be counted against the 140 characters that all Twitter users are given for one single tweet. This basically means that you can attach whatever you want and still have the full 140 characters at your disposal.

Twitter is also testing out a new replies system which will not count the username of the person youre replying to, if multiple people are being replied to, only the person who sent the original tweet will be omitted from the character count. However, it might take a while before this change is rolled out to hundreds of millions of people across the globe who use Twitter every day.
