Twitter Finally Rolls Out Its New 140 Character Limit

 140 Character

Twitter has finally rolled out the changes to its 140 character limit.

Having announced it was planning to change the character regulations in May, Twitter has finally made the update public.

Now @ names, media attachments and quoted tweets will no longer count towards the 140 limit.


This means you will be able to @ as many people as you want, attach photos, GIFs and videos without having to cut your message, as well as quote people without worrying about the character limit.

These changes will also offer more opportunities for adding visual material, which has been proven to boost retweets by a massive 35% for photos and 28% for videos – stats that could see your content get noticed even more with this update.

The update will also let you say what you want to say in one tweet, without having to send multiple tweets to get your point across.
