Twitter’s new longer tweets arrives on September 19th

September 14, 2016

When 140 characters is not enough.

A few weeks back, Twitter has announced that it will let users tweet more by changing the way it counts 140 characters when you send a tweet. No, the company won’t add more characters for tweets, but if you’re tweeting a link or an image, it won’t add against the character limit so you can say more with every tweet.

The Verge has confirmed that the new feature will arrive on September 19th and will be automatically enabled for all.

“So, you can already do a lot in a Tweet, but we want you to be able to do even more. In the coming months we’ll make changes to simplify Tweets including what counts toward your 140 characters, so for instance, @names in replies and media attachments (like photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) will no longer “use up” valuable characters,” Twitter said in an earlier blogpost.
