0Overall Score

Twitter is planning to make changes to how it counts characters, which will lead to users being able to compose longer tweets, Bloomberg has reported.Bloomberg has reported that, according to a person familiar with the matter, Twitter is set to stop counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages.

The person told Bloomberg that the change could occur within the next couple of weeks.

Twitter currently alters a URL of any length to 23 characters, which sees the space available for users within which to compose any accompanying tweet reduced.

Twitter last year removed the 140-character limit on Direct Messages, allowing users to expand on private conversations, installing a Direct Message limit of 10,000 characters.

Twitter has not made any announcement with regard to the changes.
