As per Twitter’s announcement earlier this year that the company will stop counting usernames, replies, gif, images and links as part of its 140 character limit for tweets. Twitter also states that Quote Tweets and Polls will also no longer be counted towards the 140 character tweet limit, which is also pretty neat. Apparently, today the new update is rolling out across all of Twitter apps.
