Now Express Even More in 140 Characters in Your Tweets.
Over the previous decade, the Tweet has advanced from a straightforward 140-character instant message to a rich canvas for innovative expression highlighting photographs, recordings, hashtags, Vines. In the previous couple of months we added the capacity to survey your group, respond rapidly and keenly with GIFs, and share and appreciate Periscope telecasts in Tweets.
In this way, you can as of now do a great deal in a Tweet, however we need you to have the capacity to do significantly more. In the coming months Twitter will roll out improvements to simplify Tweets including what checks toward your 140 characters, so for occasion, @names in answers and media connections (like photographs, GIFs, recordings, and surveys) will no more “go through” profitable characters. This is what will change:
• Replies: When answering to a Tweet, @names will no more number toward the 140-character tally. This will make having discussions on Twitter less demanding and more clear, no more penny-squeezing your words to guarantee they achieve the entire group.
• Media connections: When you include connections like photographs, GIFs, recordings, surveys, or Quote Tweets, that media will no more consider characters inside your Tweet. More space for words!
• Retweet and Quote Tweet yourself: We’ll be empowering the Retweet catch all alone Tweets, so you can undoubtedly Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself when you need to share another reflection or feel like an okay one went unnoticed.
• Goodbye, .@: These changes will help simplify the rules around Tweets that start with a username. New Tweets that start with a username will achieve every one of your followers. (That implies you’ll no more need to utilize the “.@” tradition, which individuals as of now use to telecast Tweets extensively.) If you need an answer to be seen by every one of your supporters, you will have the capacity to Retweet it to flag that you expect for it to be seen all the more comprehensively.
These upgrades will be accessible over the coming months. Today, we’re informing you. The upgrades most likely significantly affect Tweets.
