STARTING TODAY: express even more in 140 characters – PHOTOS ARE NOT CHARGED ANY CHARACTERS ON TWITTER

Twitter Inc. has made a major shift in how it counts characters in Tweets, giving users more freedom to compose longer messages.

The social media company TODAY stopped counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages.

 

It’s a step in a larger plan to give users more flexibility on the site.

Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey said in January that the company was looking for new ways to display text on Twitter, and would experiment based on how people use the service.
