Say goodbye to links and pictures eating into that 140 character limit
On September 19, Twitter is introducing some welcome changes to its 140 character limit.
No longer will images, polls, links, GIFs or videos count towards your 140 characters. In addition, usernames will also not contribute to a diminishing of your character limit.
This comes in response to the rumours that Twitter was to scrap the limit all together or at the least, increase it, but the negative feedback has brought them to the proposed compromise.
