The wait is finally over! No, not the new iPhone 7, but Twitter’s character limit update.
Twitter has finally rolled out their long ago promised changes to the 140 character limit applied to tweets. It is now possible to add a picture or video link to your tweets and still have 140 characters to get that all important message across to your audience. With images and video playing such an important part in marketing messaging these days, it’s an essential, and much longed for update.
Other changes mean that you can now reply without the @name of the recipient using up precious characters, as well as being able to retweet your own and other tweets with further comments. Also gone is the need to add a character, such as a full stop, ahead of a username in order for that tweet to be seen by all your followers.
It may not seem like much of a change, but now it is finally here just think of all that time that will be saved not having to re-write the perfect tweet over and over to get it to fit!
