Twitter will cut down on which types of content count toward its 140-character limit from 19 September, The Verge reported.
Media attachments and quoted tweets will no longer reduce the character count, stated the report
“The extra room for text will give users more flexibility in composing their messages,” stated The Verge.
Usernames will also no longer count when they’re at the beginning of replies.
Twitter first announced its plans to amend which content counts towards the character limit in May 2016.
