Remember when all you could do on Twitter was share a simple 140-character text-only message? That later evolved to the ability to share photos, videos and hashtags, and most recently polls Periscope broadcasts.
However, the most recent planned update is the one that I think will get the most rave reviews. Are you ready?
Twitter will be making changes to simplify Tweets including what counts toward your 140 characters, this means that @names in replies , photos, GIFs, videos, and polls will no longer "use up" valuable characters". Pretty cool right?
