Twitter has announced it is making some changes when you replay to a tweet, it will not longer count the @username that you reply to as part of the 140 character limit.
Twitter will be rolling out the changes to the web and also iOS and Android, you can see more details below.
Remember how we told you we were working on ways to let you to express more with 140 characters? Since then, we’ve introduced twoupdates, and today we’re rolling out another. Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.
With this change, we’ve simplified conversations in a few ways:
Who you are replying to will appear above the Tweet text rather than within the Tweet text itself, so you have more characters to have conversations.
You can tap on “Replying to…” to easily see and control who’s part of your conversation.
When reading a conversation, you’ll actually see what people are saying, rather than seeing lots of @usernames at the start of a Tweet.
You can see that more information about the changes that Twitter has made to replies over at its website at the link below.
