What would you do with twice the tweet? #280characters

Last night, Twitter announced that it will be doubling the length of a tweet, to 280 characters. The social network launched originally as an alternative to the text message, which back then could only be 160 characters long.

Twitter set to stop including links and photos in character limit

It may sound like a minor update, but the rumour in itself has made social media managers (and savvy tweeters) rejoice. According to Bloomberg, Twitter could be changing the way that it counts characters. This means that photos and links will no longer be included in the character limit that currently uses 23 characters for a link or photo.
