We really don’t used to like the limited 140 character rule of Twitter, wherein photos, GIFs and videos were also included in these 140 characters. With its new tweet policy, twitter has given freedom to users to write long tweets.
Although the users will still type in 140 characters but now they can add photos, videos, GIFs and polls and these will not count against the 140-character limit.
“Say more about what’s happening! Rolling out now: Photos, videos, GIFs, polls, and ‘Quote Tweets’ no longer count toward your 140 characters,” Twitter said in a post on Tuesday.
According to The Verge, the micro-blogging website is also testing out new replies that will omit usernames of the people you are replying to from the character limit.
If you reply to multiple people at once, Twitter omits all of them from your tweet.
Twitter planned to build a new feature earlier this year that will allow users to tweet longer than its traditional 140-character limit.
The company considered a 10,000-character limit. This is the character limit the company uses for its Direct Messages product.
Appearing on a TV show, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the 140-character limit is “a beautiful constraint” and that Twitter “will never lose that feeling”.
