When you add links or images to a Twitter post you don’t actually get the full 140 characters to leave you statement. Links and images eat up your allowable characters. In a quote published from Bloomberg, “Twitter 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.”
