Have you tried to share a photo or video on Twitter and witnesses your character count get reduced? We all have. It's pretty frustrating but those days are coming to an end.
Last week, the micro-blogging site announced that it will be making changes to its 140-character-limit. Bob Turner and Jason Goff discuss it on this week's podcast episode of Online Marketing Guys.
In an attempt to reinvigorate a social site that has been under fire, Twitter decided to make some changes. It used to be that adding a photo, video or a poll to a tweet reduced the numbers of characters you could use for actual message. Now, the social site has to decided to remove those reductions.
Users can now share images and videos and still have the full 140-characters in tact. Polls will no longer reduce the character count either, nor will another user's handle.
While some die-hard Twitter users may see these changes as blasphemy, Both Bob and Jason agree that the move actually shores-up the 140-character-limit, ensuring that users now get the max number of characters for their messages.
Good job Twitter!
