You'll soon be able to pack more content into each of your tweets, according to a report from The Verge. The new changes, which should activate on September 19th, will no longer count media attachments such as gifs, pictures, video and polls against the message's 140-character limit. What's more, user names at the start of the message will supposedly not count against the limit either, though it will be interesting to see just how long of a canoe you'll be able to construct if that is indeed the case. The Verge report does not specify whether all of these features will be implemented at the same time or gradually rolled out beginning next Monday.
