NO MORE LIMITS FOR TWITTER
Twitter announced that it was easing its 140-character limit on tweets, implementing a policy announced in May to no longer factor certain add-ons including pictures into a message's length.
The new policy exempts media attachments such as photos, videos and polls from the character limit, as well as tweets that are quoted in a retweet. Amid reports that Twitter may be seeking ways to cut costs or even sell itself, the San Francisco-based service has been adding new features including live video. The latest move eases but does not entirely eliminate the 140-character limit, which was set due to mobile phone text messaging constraints in place when Twitter launched in 2006.
