Twitter’s more flexible 140 character limit will come into force on the 19th September.
The much-discussed feature was announced back in May, and will mean that media attachments will not count towards the 140 limit.
When the change comes into effect, photos, GIFs, polls and videos will not use up characters in the limit.
Twitter has also said that if users start a tweet with a username, this won’t be included in the 140 character restriction.
In addition to this, if users of the platform quote tweets in one of their posts, this won’t be counted either.
And the change is expected to be introduced on the 19th September, The Verge reports, after Hootsuite started alerting its users to the imminent change last week.
Twitter’s update is designed to give users more freedom to send detailed tweets, without having to worry about any media condensing the message.
