Twitter wants you to keep your tweets short and sweet

twitter-logo.jpgIt’s a change that many of us probably wouldn’t have noticed, but soon Twitter intends to shorten its already super short tweets when you add a link into them.

According to the Twitter Developer blog, the micro-blogging platform will soon start bumping up its shortened URLs by a few characters, meaning avid Twitter users will only have around 117 characters to write something stupid and witty beside their links.

Third party apps will also be forced to adopt the new changes and although many of us won’t be too upset by the reduced about of tweet space, social media companies and brands using the platform may find it annoying to reduce their content even more.
