Twitter Confirms: Tweet Structure Major Changes

In a blog post today (https://blog.twitter.com/express-even-more-in-140-characters) Twitter confirmed the rumors that they will remove a number of barriers that make the 140-character limit more difficult than it needs to be.

The changes announced:

• @names in replies no longer count toward the 140.
• media attachments no longer count toward the 140.
• users will be able to retweet and quote tweet their own tweets.
• Tweets starting with @names will now be seen by all followers. No more need for using .@name to start a tweet. (But replies will still be seen only by mutual followers.)

No mention of links not counting toward the 140 limit, which was mentioned in most of the rumor posts.

The changes will take months to roll out because Twitter wants to give time for developers using its APIs to adapt to the changes. (Twitter caring about third-party developers? That's news too! ;-)

Here’s the scenario: You run content marketing for a startup, or a company a little further along. You’re in a management meeting, humbly bragging about how much traffic the blog is getting, and the Founder asks:

“But how do we know we’re making money from this traffic? How much revenue did we generate from it last month?”

You smile calmly at the executive team, and resist the urge to throw your phone at them. You calm down in time to realize you don’t actually have a specific method of quantifying revenue from the blog.
