As we all know that Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called “tweets”. Registered users can read and post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them. Recently the microblogging Twitter hinted that they may remove the photos and links both from its 140 character limit.
Twitter Will Remove Photos And Links Both From 140-Character Limit
[dropcap]The[/dropcap] microblogging Twitter Inc. is making an important alteration in how it counts the characters in every Tweets, giving users more freedom to compose longer messages. Every picture is meriting a thousand words, except on Twitter, where it is deserving exactly 23 characters. Hence, this could change very soon although the microblogging Twitter is analyzing to free from the links of any kind, including photos, from its 140-character limit probably within the next two weeks.
As the microblogging, Twitter users have lamented about the fact that link and photo URLs count upon each tweet’s 140-character limit. As the links are currently taken up to 23 characters, even after the Twitter automatically shortens them. Hence, a Twitter spokesperson denied affirming the change and said that “we don’t comment on rumor or speculation”.
If the new character count system is really executed, it will allow the users of Twitter to compose long-winded tweets, but still it’s far less severe than another change which Twitter reportedly considered earlier in this year, that would have increased its limit to the thousands of characters.
The CEO of the microblogging Twitter, Jack Dorsey said that “Twitter is not going to be shy about building more utility and power into Twitter for people. As long as it’s consistent with what people want to do, we’re going to explore it”.
Hence, you can celebrate if this small modification goes into effect, but, don’t assume it to forecast what some have requested the total elimination of the 140-character limit. The microblogging Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey also said in that the “limit is here to say as it’s a good constraint for us, and it allows for of-the-moment brevity”.
