Smart Software For Maverick Entrepreneurs

Here´s the deal:

Less than 9 months ago Twitter shared a list of the features most requested via #helloworld on the official Twitter blog, which may have given us something of a road map as to where Twitter could be looking to make changes in the near future.

As per the #helloworld feedback, the most requested Twitter features are:

  • Ability to edit Tweets
  • Remove the 140-character limit (and an equal number of requests not to remove it)
  • Improve the Lists feature
  • Accessibility improvements across the product
  • Lots of feedback about Moments
  • Suggestions on how to improve search

That´s not all...

Today we finally see some of the #helloworld features come to live. Twitter recently announced an upcoming update that will make big changes to the way people (and brands) create content and engage on the social media platform. Here are the main changes from twitters announcement.

  • Replies: When replying to a Tweet, @names will no longer count toward the 140-character count. This will make having conversations on Twitter easier and more straightforward, no more penny-pinching your words to ensure they reach the whole group.
  • Media attachments: When you add attachments like photos, GIFs, videos, polls, or Quote Tweets, that media will no longer count as characters within your Tweet. More room for words!
  • Retweet and Quote Tweet yourself: We’ll be enabling the Retweet button on your own Tweets, so you can easily Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself when you want to share a new reflection or feel like a really good one went unnoticed.
  • Goodbye, .@: These changes will help simplify the rules around Tweets that start with a username. New Tweets that begin with a username will reach all your followers. (That means you’ll no longer have to use the ”.@” convention, which people currently use to broadcast Tweets broadly.) If you want a reply to be seen by all your followers, you will be able to Retweet it to signal that you intend for it to be viewed more broadly.
