Twitter is a service geared very specifically toward the outspoken and fast-paced person. For those that are avid users of this social network, you will be seeing some changes.
Some tweets that start with other users’ handles will now be seen by all followers. URLs that point to uploaded pictures, GIFs, videos, and polls, no longer count toward the character limit and You can now retweet yourself.
Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey said in a statement:
“One of the biggest priorities for this year is to refine our product and make it simpler. We’re focused on making Twitter a whole lot easier and faster. This is what Twitter is great at—what’s happening now, live conversation and the simplicity that we started the service with.”
