Starting Today, Pics And Videos Don’t Count Toward Your Twitter Character Limit
Sadly, links still do
Twitter just got a little easier to use. Starting today, pictures, videos, “other uploaded media” and quote tweets will not count toward a tweet’s 140-character limit.
The move was first reported by Bloomberg back in May, and it was thought it would only take two weeks to implement. It was also rumored that links would no longer count towards the character limit, but that doesn’t appear to be the case in today’s rollout.
