Twitter Update: Longer tweets with the same 140 characters

After months of speculation and rumours, its official. You can now tweet more without Twitter increasing the 140 character limit.

Now photos, videos, GIFS, polls and Quote Tweets will not count in your tweet. This according to me is a fantastic move on part of Twitter. They’ve given the consumers what they want (well sort of) without damaging the integrity of the app. Kudos Twitter!
