Twitter lovers, rejoice! Regular users of Twitter know how frustrating it is to be limited by the 140 character count. A while ago, the social media platform promised to resolve the issue. And it's finally happening.
Twitter no longer counts photos, gifs, videos, quote tweets or polls in the 140 characters! So there's no chance of ever running out of char pic.twitter.com/ztvmLRlJTJ — Coral (@Coral) September 20, 2016
Roses are red.#VoicePremiere gonna slay.
We’re going to keep on going until we run out of characters since Twitter changed the game today!! pic.twitter.com/zZrBPjy8OA — The Voice (@NBCTheVoice) September 19, 2016
