Twitter Makes it Official, Media and Replies Using "@" No Longer Count Towards 140 Character Limit

...

Earlier this month, it was reported that Twitter would soon stop counting links, photos, mentions, and other things towards your 140 character limit when composing a tweet. Twitter made these changes official this morning, hopefully bringing an end to compacting words and sentences to make them fit within the confines of 140 characters.

Once these changes take place, over the next few months according to Twitter, replies with @names and media attachments (photos, GIFs, videos, polls) will no longer count.

In addition, interactions with fellow Twitter users are also changing. Instead of using a “.@” to mention someone while also broadcasting it, a new tweet that begins with a mention can go out to all of your followers. Once tweeted, you can retweet your own tweet – also a new feature – that way all of your followers can view it. It seems somewhat complicated, but that’s what we get. In conjunction, when RT’ing your own tweet, you can opt to simply RT or Quote your tweet, giving you a few options on how to interact with your own content.

Twitter states that it is working with users and developers to roll these changes out as soon as possible in the coming months.
