It’s true: Twitter is making changes to its 140-character limit, and links to media and @replies will no longer count against the cap.
At least now conversations on twitter will stop looking idiotic.
Yea, totally. And it's going to be a lot easier for new users to figure it out.
The 140 character limit still doesn't make sense to me. A standard SMS text is 160. Wouldn't it make sense for them to match so that one text to update Twitter doesn't get cut off? 140 feels way too short.
The end of .@ is a biggie, but with the images/urls not counting either it will be interesting to see if it gets abused in any way.
