Twitter eases 140-character limit in replies
Now, the company says that when you reply to someone – or to a group – user names will no longer count toward those 140 characters. This will be especially helpful with group conversations, where replying to two, three or more users at a time could be especially difficult with the character constraints.
When users reply, the names of the people they are replying to will be on top of the text of the actual tweet.
Last year, Twitter said it would stop counting photos, videos, quote tweets, polls and GIF animations toward the character limit.
