One of the most frustrating things about using Twitter has always been having to limit the total number of characters in a tweet to 140 or less.
Simply put, it’s often pretty hard to get your message across in just 140 characters!
Even worse, photos and various other “extras” that are often added to a tweet can make that job harder still.
Although users have complained about the 140 character limit for years, Twitter has always resisted making any changes to the iconic, but frustrating limit.
Well, apparently the dual pressures of customer complaints and market forces have finally forced them to give in and make a few much-needed changes to the tweeting process.
No, they haven’t dropped the 140 character limit, but images no longer count against it. You can now include one or more photos in your tweets and you’ll still be able to include a full 140 characters of text!
Allowing you to add multiple photos without affecting the character count is a huge improvement all by itself, but Twitter didn’t stop there. You can now also add polls, videos, GIFs and Quote Tweets and still use your entire 140 characters to get your message across to your readers!
Bottom line: Twitter has finally made some long-awaited changes to the ways users can interact with others via their Tweets (and even more changes are in the pipeline).
