You Can Tweet Longer Now with New Twitter Character Limit

Twitter announced the development in a blog post, saying that it also made changes to the way it display tweets.

Twitter is rolling out changes to its website and apps that will see tagged usernames in replies not count toward its 140 character limit, allowing users to publish longer replies. Furthermore, the tweets sent as replies are categorized under a separate tab which makes it more hard for other users to see what your replies are if they don't follow the same person you are replying to.

Users will also be able to tap on "Replying to." to see and manage who is in their conversation.

Moreover, in latest update, the names of the people users are replying will be on top of the text of the actual tweet.

With that off the to-do list maybe Twitter's engineers can start working on letting us edit posts. Twitter does not officially raise the character limit, but stops counting username in character limit. Plus, it would have defeated the entire concept of Twitter to begin with: sending out small bursts of information or thoughts to other people on the internet.
