Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit | #SocialMedia 

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit | #SocialMedia  | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Twitter Inc. is making a major shift in how it counts characters in Tweets, giving users more freedom to compose longer messages.


The social media company will soon stop counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages, according to a person familiar with the matter. The change could happen in the next two weeks, said the person who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. Links currently take up 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. The company declined to comment.


It’s a step in a larger plan to give users more flexibility on the site. Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey said in January that the company was looking for new ways to display text on Twitter, and would experiment based on how people use the service. For example, some people tweet screenshots of longer text in articles, or send many tweets one after the other to tell a story.


Twitter’s 140-character limit was originally adopted because it was a way to send Tweets while fitting all the information within a mobile text message -- a common way for sending Tweets when the service debuted in 2006, before the proliferation of smartphones.

donhornsby's insight:
The company earlier this year considered raising the limit to as many as 10,000 characters. But the quick, concise nature of Tweets has helped set the site apart from the competition. Executives have spent the last few months emphasizing how Twitter is a destination for live events and discussion. Removing the character requirement for links and photos may encourage users to add more media to their posts.

Digital CitizenShip: Social Media AND Privacy

Digital CitizenShip: Social Media AND Privacy | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Social Media is about sharing, right!? That’s WHAT it is mostly, BUT there are the HIDDEN commercial intents which MOST people don’t see (OUR Privacy is sold and OUR friends one too…) and there isALSO OUR responsibility about it WHEN WE share, WE will discuss in detail here…

First of ALL, there isn’t ANYTHING for FREE in this world, even the death costs the life and a lot of money for the funerals ;)

SO… Let us analyse WHY WE get Social Media and other services on the internet for “FREE“. BTW: there isn’t anything for FREE, WE pay with OUR information which the companies are gathering!

donhornsby's insight:

For content marketers that are looking to increase content production and save time, content curation is the answer. In addition, your audience will thank you for exposing them to new sources of 3rd party, independent content. In fact, according to a recent study, best-in-class marketers use a content marketing mix of 65% created content and 25% curated content.
