Twitter Update: Now You Can Say Even More in 140 Characters
A quick update for all of our Twitter users:
In a tweet containing an informative, engaging, and colorful GIF (a great way to capture your audience's attention and boost your engagement), Twitter announced that photos, videos, and media uploaded into tweets will no longer count against users' 140-character limit.
Additionally, quote tweets – which enable users to add context to someone else's tweet, while keeping the original content with it – are also now excluded from the 140-character limit.
What does this mean for us?
It means that we can say more than ever in our 140 characters. We can add all the nuance needed (that can fit in the tweet), without skimping on engaging content like images or videos. And as you know, engagement with your tweet goes way up if you include an image or video.
