Twitter Users Can Now Do More With 140 Characters

Posted on: September 19th, 2016 by ABC News No Comments

Twitter(NEW YORK) — Twitter users: You’re still bound by the 140-character rule. However, what counts toward that 140-character cap is changing.

As of Monday, sharing photos, videos, animated GIFs, polls and quoted tweets no longer count toward the 140-character limit.

Twitter announced the changes back in May, along with a number of other changes.

The other changes, including the way that reply tweets are handled, do not appear to have taken effect yet.

Say more about what's happening! Rolling out now: photos, videos, GIFs, polls, and Quote Tweets no longer count toward your 140 characters.
