Twitter has officially changed their 140 character limit

Twitter has finally answered many marketing professionals prayers by editing their 140 character limit restriction on their messaging service. The company will no longer count pictures, videos or links as part of the message.

(Currently links, images and videos take up 23 characters from the 140 characters)

This will allow users to create a stronger message that will hopefully connect with their followers.

Twitter’s Chief Executive Officer, Jack Dorsey, said that the company will release the new changes in the next couple of weeks and that the new change is, “a step in a larger plan to give users more flexibility on the site.”
