Now you can say more when replying to someone on Twitter. Today, the platform unlocked one limitation from replies. You’re no longer reduced to less than 140 characters if you want to say something to someone else.
We’re changing replies so that you have all 140 characters to express yourself.

Prior to today, Twitter users couldn’t take advantage of the 140-character limit in replies. Usernames would count against the limit. It was particularly annoying if the user you’re responding to had a lengthy username. But that’s no more. You can (almost) run wild with your replies moving forward. With usernames no longer counted, you get more space to speak your mind with others.
The change is rolling out now to Twitter on the web, Android, and iOS.
