Twitter may finally be changing it’s 140-character limit—sort of. A new report in Bloomberg says that Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey wants to make the platform easier to use, and is considering some changes.
The idea would be that soon, external links and media (like photos and GIFs), wouldn’t be included in the 140-character Tweet length limit.
He reportedly told investors, “We think there’s a lot of opportunity in our product to fix some broken windows that we know are inhibiting growth.” Essentially, at the very most, it will give you an additional 23 characters (the point at which links are automatically shortened anyways) to add that final funny hashtag that really seals the deal on your punchline.
Addressing the flatlined growth, Dorsey reportedly told investors, “We think there’s a lot of opportunity in our product to fix some broken windows that we know are inhibiting growth.” If there’s anything that can make Twitter the promising social media platform of the future it once was, it’s not counting that Crying Jordan image as part of your Tweet.
