According to a report by Bloomberg, Twitter is going to stop counting images and links as part of its 140 character limit.
Currently, links can take up to 23 characters - which is quite a large chunk of the the designated 140. Originally the limit was introduced to make tweets fit into a text message. When Twitter launched in 2006, smartphones were not available, and many users typed tweets into text format before posting them.
The move is also suspected to be a way to attract new users. The company has struggled in recent years, seeing its price decline by more than 70 percent over the past year.
Microblogging site Twitter is to stop counting photographs and links in its 140-character limit for tweets, according to a report from Bloomberg. The change could be made within the next two weeks, Bloomberg quoted a source as saying.
