Coming soon: express even more in 140 characters | Twitter Blogs

On Twitter, we announced that we will change the limit on the number of characters in tweets, so that "Users can use Twitter more conveniently". Specifically, when replying tweet "@ user name" displayed at the beginning of the tweet, photos, movies, GIF,VoteAnd cited tweets and other attachments will not be included in the 140 character limit of the number of characters.

Also, until now, if you want other followers to see the reply tweets, you had to add a period like ". @ User name" at the beginning of the tweet, but in the future even if the reply tweets are without a period Like ordinary tweets, it is displayed on the follower timeline. In addition, to make it easier to retweet or quote your tweets, specification changes will be made so that the retweet button will appear on your tweet as well.

The above changes will be implemented sequentially within a few months.
