Get ready to do more with Twitter’s 140-characters!
Is it hard to believe that Twitter began with simple 140-character text messages?
Twitter has continued to evolve into an artistic and creative canvas for users to express their text messages with photos, videos, vines, hashtags and more. Recently, Twitter has included new abilities for users to create polls for their community, interact with GIFs and share Periscope broadcasts.
What other cool new options will Twitter have for us next?
Changes that will simplify Twitter:
- Tweets will no longer count characters for @names, replies and media attachments (photos, videos, GIFs and polls).
- Twitter replies with not be deducted from the 140-character count.
- Media attachments including GIFs, videos, polls and quote tweets will not use any of your valuable characters.
- The ability to Retweet yourself is coming back! Once this change takes place, you will be able to quickly Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself - when you decide to share a new thought or bring more attention to an important tweet.
- @Usernames on Twitter will no longer use the @ sign to reach all of your followers. After this change occurs, users will be able to Reply or Retweet it to reach a wider audience.
