All of 140 characters of Twitter are now available for reply
Twitter announced the change via a blog post that was tweeted out by the official account. The latest such update came today, as Twitter announced that Twitter usernames will no longer be counted in the 140 characters of a tweet. You can also edit who sees your reply by clicking or tapping on "replying to" and removing unwanted handles from the list that appears. In threads involving more than one person, you'll see a username followed by "and 1 other", "and 2 others", and so on.
Twitter users-old and new are particularly frustrated at some of the unclear rules surrounding how they compose and send tweets.
A year ago, the company did express intentions of relaxing the restrictions for 140-character tweets in a bid to bring more members onto the platform. Dorsey explained at the time the character limit was originally because lots of tweets were sent via SMS but eventually became what Twitter is about. Twitter also recently eliminated media attachments, photos, GIFs and polls counting against the 140-character limit.
The usernames to which you are replying will no longer prefix the conversation or eat up space in the 140-character limit.
With this change made on Thursday, Twitter is also renovating the way it displays reply tweets on its mobile phones and web platforms.
Now the company is rolling it out to all of its 319 million active users (up to 48 million of whom might not care because they're bots, according to a recent study). Now, the handle is moved above the reply in a new line that says "replying to [insert handle]". Twitter does not officially raise the character limit, but stops counting username in character limit.
To make this happen, Twitter is making changes to the way you reply to someone in a conversation. September of past year, it made an exception for media attachments (images, GIFs, videos, polls, and more) and quoted tweets.
Twitter has made this a great day for countless Twitter users who feel suffocated by the 140 character limit.
