The dot is going bye bye
You’re all probably wondering what I’m babbling on about.
One of the things not related to the 140 character limit is that they’re going to address is the anomaly of replying to another tweeter.
For some unknown reason twitter made it that when you replied to someone on twitter, not all your followers would see that reply.
Only those followers who followed you AND the person you were replying to would see that reply.
So everyone started putting a dot/period/full stop, (whatever you call it) at the beginning of the tweet (before the name of the person you’re replying to), so this would ensure all their followers would see that reply.
Now joy of joys, twitter will be changing it so all your followers can see that reply instead of having to use the work around I mentioned above.
One more thing is that twitter will be enabling the retweet button on your own tweets so you can obviously now retweet or quote your own tweets.
Okay now on to the other good stuff this time related to the 140 character limit.
Twitter are no longer going to count the following in the 140 character limit
- When you’re replying to a tweet, the username of the account you’re replying to will no longer count in the total
2. Links to blog posts, images etc, will no longer be counted.
