Posting messages on the Twitter social network with a link or picture will have a new condition: the user should be more concise with text to accompany the message. And since today February 20, 2013, the network of microblogging spends less character to such shipments. Serve with photos or web addresses some message force the customer to have to be more concise in their ads, taking stock, more specifically, up to 117 or 118 characters in total.
The famous social network messaging came to light in 2006. Responsible for carrying out the service was Jack Dorsey. And the main theme of Twitter was to have a message in plain text, the style of mobile SMS, what the user was doing at the time. However, shortly after included more features.

There will also be cases where it is reduced to the 117 characters available in the case of a site with the security protocol “https”. Therefore, the original idea of relying on text messages as if they were texts sent from a mobile phone, you aside their reason for being. Indeed, some already qualify to Twitter as another means of communication that provides instant information and firsthand.

Moreover, the levels would be: none, low, medium or high.
And, if a single message is able to start a big discussion on Twitter through different responses to an original tweet or retweets are several others-make the play-fully, the level of information quality would high.
Meanwhile, these changes have not yet been confirmed by the company on its official blog, normal channel of all communications.
