Twitter to Stop Counting Photos, Links Toward 140-Character Limit?

BlueBirdRedBullhorn

No, Twitter is not increasing its 140-character limit for tweets, but users may soon be able to pack a lot more information into them, regardless.

Bloomberg reported that photos and links will not be counted as part of the 140-character limit, with the change possibly taking effect in the next two weeks.

According to Bloomberg, links added to tweets currently occupy 23 characters, even when URL shorteners are used.

Bloomberg added that the 140-character limit was originally adopted to match the limit of text messages in 2006, when Twitter launched.

Readers: What do you think of this potential change to tweets?
