Chris Welch of The Verge has reported that Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) is finally changing its long awaited character count in its tweets.
It feels like a year ago (but it was actually May) that Twitter announced it would stop counting images and quoted tweets as a part of its now famed 10 character tweet limit. It turns out, September 19th is the day.

In just the last few months the narrative surrounding Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) has gone from one of utter confusion and lack of innovation, to a radical shift in identity and free flowing innovation.
