Twitter to stop counting photos and links in 140-character limit, report says

Soon you’ll be able to tweet a photo or link without it counting against your 140-character count, Bloomberg says.

Links might not count soon in your tweet character count.

Someone “familiar with the matter” told Bloomberg that Twitter is planning to make the change in as soon as two weeks. However, nothing has been officially confirmed by the company.

URL links, including ones to images, currentlytake 23 characters off a tweet’s character count.

We reached out to Twitter for more information, but the company doesn’t “comment on rumors or speculation.”

There were rumors earlier this year that Twitter was considering allowing tweets up to 10,000 in characters. But Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey ended that speculation in March by telling NBC’s “Today” show that the 140-character limit is staying.
