From Twitter: Now on Twitter: 140 characters for your replies. “Remember how we told you we were working on ways to let you to express more with 140 characters? Since then, we’ve introduced twoupdates, and today we’re rolling out another. Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.” Note to posterity: this is getting the most negative reaction from users I’ve seen since Instagram went to an algorithm timeline instead of a date-based timeline. Just saying.
