Tweets Get Longer

If you are feeling cramped by the 140-character limit of Twitter and wish that URLs and photos didn't eat away your character count, you'll be happy to know that on September 19, Twitter is celebrating that random day by changing the way they do things. This will be an incredible step forward and now you'll be able to be more wordy when you post media and links. Really it's not a bad thing, but I don't think this will breathe life back into twitter.

Of course, this isn't the first time that we've heard these sorts of rumors. Last September, news broke that the 140-character limit would soon be nixed in a new product offering (it wasn't). And in May of this year, Twitter itself announced that it would soon ease the character-limit rules, though it did not set a specific date for implementing the change. We reached out to Twitter for confirmation but the company declined to comment so we'll just have to wait until Monday to find out if the rumors are true.
