From 19 Sep, Twitter to Exempt Gifs, Pics From 140-Character Limit
Twitter will finally allow users to tweet up to 140 characters, excluding gifs, images, usernames, videos and polls.
Twitter will stop counting media attachments, including images, GIFs, videos, polls, and usernames, within the 140-character limit starting 19 September, allowing users to compose longer tweets, The Verge report said.
The new change will not completely remove the 140-character limit. What it really changes is how Twitter counts the character limit.
Twitter first announced plans to stop counting extras like photos, videos, and user polls toward the limit back in May, but gave no date on when the shift would occur, the report adds.
It is still unclear as to whether all of these changes will occur simultaneously or in stages.
The 140-character limit has been around as long as Twitter. This way, Jack Dorsey can continue to stay true to his promise of not increasing Twitter’s character limit.
