Twitter now lets you post longer tweets

“Users can now utilise all 140 characters just to write the text in a tweet”

If you’ve ever needed to spell ‘you’ as ‘u’, only because you attached images or videos to your tweet, the latest Twitter update might just be what you need. As we reported earlier, Twitter has revisited the policies around what counts as a character in a tweet, and the feature is available starting today.
While earlier, images, videos, GIFs, polls and quote tweets amounted to some amount of characters, now users can utilise all 140 characters to just write the text, as the multimedia content attached to the tweet will no longer count. While the news regarding the change surfaced back in May, the feature went live today. Earlier, there were rumours suggesting that Twitter is considering to extend the character limit to 10,000, that probably isn’t happening anytime soon.

An engineer by qualification and a writer by interest, Deeksha has been working on blending technology and words together ever since she completed her graduation. A crazy fashion enthusiast, you’ll find her creating the most curious analogies between the world of tech, and say…an haute couture shoe. You might want to look up a fashion glossary before reading her work. Personally a fan of Windows smartphones, Deeksha has developed a knack for Android-powered devices over her time here at 91mobiles, and is just starting to delve into the Macintosh world, while iOS remains on the list. When not writing reviews or features, she likes to read fiction novels, browse through the catalogues of all the brands that exist, shop enough to clothe a small town, discover a new food outlet at least twice a day, crib about being fat…and think of ways to take over the world while doing these things.
