Twitter to take names and pictures out of 140-character limit

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One-hundred-and-forty characters will soon no longer be the limit.

Twitter says it's stretching its limit on tweets, taking names and images out of the count.

In the coming months, the company said it will only count text in its character count. 

Twitter's senior project manager says the change will give people the chance to have easier and more straight forward conversations.

The company also hinted at more upcoming features and changes.
