Remember earlier this year there were rumors circulating Twitter that the character limit was going to increase to 10,000. The Twitter community was not having it at all for the simple reason that there’s enough rants as is, and allowing one to use that many characters in one tweet is just crazy!
Even though users aren’t here for the crazy long tweets, they were still unsatisfied with the 140 character limit. So, Twitter has decided to make a change that should satisfy most users.
On Sept. 19 you will no longer have to worry about usernames, media attachments of photos, videos and polls, or quoted tweets taking up the character limits.
Twitter has finally decided to allow “full expressiveness of the 140 characters” as stated by CEO Jack Dorsey in May. This is one of the most progressive changes Twitter has made in the last few years.
Tell us what you think of these changes below!
