Report: Twitter Relaxes 140-character Limit From Sept. 19

 

 

By ROMMY IMAH

Micro-blogging website Twitter will stop counting media attachments, including images, GIFs, videos, polls, and usernames, against the 140-character limit starting September 19, allowing users to compose longer tweets, a media report said.

The new change will not completely remove the 140-character limit. What it really changes is how Twitter counts the character limit, according to a report on ett.com.
“Twitter first announced plans to stop counting extras like photos, videos, and user polls toward the limit back in May, but gave no firm date on when the shift would occur,” TheVerge reported on Tuesday.
It is still unclear as to whether all of these changes will occur simultaneously or in stages.
The extra room for text will give users more flexibility in composing their messages, the report added.

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
