Twitter Expands 140-Character Limit On Tweets

Twitter has confirmed rumours it is going to stop counting attachments in its 140-character limit, giving users leeway to be more wordy.

Photos, videos and other media will not be counted in the strict per-tweet maximum under changes in the coming months, nor will users' handles when replying.

The announcement is the latest bid by the San Francisco company to make its messaging service easier to use amid sluggish user growth.

Twitter has only a fifth of the users of its main rival, Facebook.

Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey said: "We're always going to look for opportunities to make tweets a lot more expressive, and enable people to say what they want to say.

"As long as things are fast, easy, simple and expressive, we're going to look at what we can do to make Twitter a better experience."

Earlier this year, Twitter tweaked its chronological timeline so that tweets deemed to be of particular interest to users appear near the top.

Last year, it launched a news curation feature called Moments.

Twitter has reported revenue of $595m (£408m) for the first three months of 2016, which was below industry analysts' forecasts.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
