LAHORE (Web Desk) – In a strive to give users more freedom, Twitter is planning to change how it counts characters in Tweets.
The microblogging site will soon stop counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages.
The change could happen in the next two weeks, said an anonymous source concerned with the development.
Although twitter shortens photos and links, they still consume 23 characters making it difficult for tweeters to comment within the 140 character limit.
Twitter has been making video a priority as part of its push for live events and is working on more content deals for streaming sports, political events and entertainment.
