Twitter recently revealed it’s most recent update, which is giving replies on the platform a new look that we can all get onboard with. When replying to another user’s tweet, the @usernames are no longer counting towards your 140-character limit in your response. This is another change made to the 140-character limit, the first updates rolling out last September, that has been made by Twitter over the last couple of months that is helping make the platform more beneficial to its users.
How your conversations will be changed:
- When reading replies, you can get right to the information – @usersnames are no longer shown at the beginning of replies
- Who you are replying to will appear between your username and the actual tweet
- If you click on “Replying to…” you can see who is replying to and part of the conversation
- You can easily click on the usernames you want to reply to, and un-check the usernames you want to leave out of the conversation
- Usernames you are replying to are no longer counted towards your 140-character limit
With so many users annoyed by the short character limit within the platform, this update as well as the previous updates, are helping make the Twitter experience more user-friendly. This update will give you more space to hold conversations and reply to other users within the platform.
