Twitter is Reducing Some Tweets Total Characters
Announced back in December, Twitter will be reducing the character limits on certain tweets. This change has arrived and tweets containing URLs will be reduced to 118 characters, if using a HTTPS URL the tweet will only have 117. This means, in short, that tweeting out links will now be a little tougher for you wordsmiths out there.
Tweets with links having limited characters isn’t new for Twitter. However, anyone who has to write a call to action on a tweet with a link will have less space to work with. The reason for the change is that condensed links will be taking up more characters resulting in a 2 character loss. While that might not seem like much, as someone who tries to avoid typing messages like “U R gonna <3 this" I know personally I may have to adjust to the new restrictions.
How do you think you'll be affected by these new limits?
