Twitter to Remove Links and Images From Character Count; Public Rejoices


Could this be it? Could the actually count be over?!

According to a Bloomberg report, Twitter may very well be on its way to removing photos and links to its character count limit, giving users more freedom with their tweets.

According to the source ho asked to remain anonymouse because the announcement isn’t yet public, it’s quite possible that the change may happen in the next two weeks. Links currently take up to 23 characters, so this could mean a bit more wiggle room for the witty. However, we’ve all got to keep it hush-hush in the meantime.

They sang Twitter’s praises.

They felt the spirit of tweet count freedom move in them.

Time to get sassy.
