Twitter Handles In Replies Will No Longer Count In 140 Character Limit

Twitter Handles In Replies Will No Longer Count In 140 Character Limit”

Twitter announced the development in a blog post, saying that it also made changes to the way it display tweets.

You can tap on "Replying to" to easily see and control who's part of your conversation. When reading a conversation, the text will be more visible, and no lkonger all the usernames at the start of the Tweet. Twitter, despite the real-world trouble, continues introducing various updates and upgrades for their users.

This solution will be helpful especially when you are conversing in a group where you may need to reply to more than one person at a time.

- If your reply has four Twitter handles and the you want to remove 3, you will have to uncheck three boxes to do so in the new reply feature. Although tweet replies are still limited to 140 characters, only the text of the message itself will appear within the tweet.

Spacewalk mishap: Astronauts lose important piece of space station's protective shielding
NASA spokesman Dan Huot said the three remaining shields were installed to cover the most vulnerable spots, the report said. The third spacewalk, by Whitson and European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet, now is planned for April 6.

Change is the only constant in life, but we're not sure if the changes Twitter is bringing to the platform are heading in the right direction. This means that Twitter users can now make use of all the 140 characters all the time.

This move is part of Twitter's attempt to allow users to "express even more in 140 characters", and has been forthcoming since May. You can find more details about how replies work in our help center.

Twitter handles used within original, non-reply posts will still factor into the usual character limit.

The Atlantic's Robinson Meyer, a longtime Twitter critic, seemed to buck the backlash with a tweet declaring Twitter's user base "the only group of people more intransigent and preening than the Freedom caucus". (Gizmodo's William Turton was quick to demonstrate this capability, and to use it as evidence that "Twitter just ruined Twitter.") Some have also complained that removing the text of usernames from replies diminishes their context.

This past September, Twitter made another change to the way it counts 140 characters in tweets.

With the character limit relaxed, users will be encouraged to share pictures, links and videos, helping boost engagement.

Twitter said today's update was in response to various calls and feedbacks it got from users who have been clamoring for changes to its 140-character limit.
