Twitter has revamped its rules! Here’s a glimpse of some of the exciting new updates as per the Twitter blog:
Replies: When replying to a Tweet, @names will no longer count toward the 140-character limit. So having group conversations on Twitter will be easier—you won’t have to cut back on your message to ensure you can include every name.
Media attachments: When you attach photos, GIFs, videos, polls, or Quote Tweets, that media will no longer count as characters within your Tweet.
Retweet and Quote Tweet yourself: If something you’ve Tweeted is worth repeating, you’ll be able to Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself!
You don’t have to “dot” your @: Tweets that begin with a username will now reach all your followers—you don’t have to use the “.@” convention. And if you want all your followers to see a reply, you can simply Retweet it to reach a wider audience.
