*Hip hip* HOORAAAY!
The long awaited, 140 characters PLUS Twitter handle has finally arrived! We were promised this addition back in May 2016, along with the media in tweets such as images and GIF’s not using any of your character limit and the ability to Retweet and Quote yourself.
These changes rolled out in 2016, with the arrival of the option to Retweet and Quote your own tweets coming in to affect in June 2016, and the capacity to use media in tweets without losing any of your characters since September.
Starting today, when you reply to a tweet it will look like this.
And if you want to remove someone from the conversation, you simply click on the twitter handles after ‘Replying to’ and de-select the people you don’t want.
Twitter says “It’s now easier to follow a conversation, so you can focus on what a discussion is about, and who is having it. Also, with all 140 characters for your replies, you have more room to participate in group conversations.”
