Twitter Plans to Stop Counting Links and Photos in 140-Character Limit

At the current time, photos take up 24 characters and links take up 23 characters, eliminating 47 available characters when both are included in a tweet. Twitter is reportedly introducing the change to give Twitter users “more flexibility” after exploring methods that would allow users to include more text in tweets.

A change in policy that’s in keeping with how people use the service? Weird, but welcome.
