Changes to Twitter's Character Count
We all know that GIFs can take a Tweet from 0 to 100. Unfortunately, adding media attachments like GIFs or images to Tweets could often push them over the 140 character limit.
Luckily, Twitter has made some changes to what is counted in the character limit!
When sending a Tweet from your Hootsuite dashboard, attachments like photos, GIFs, and videos will no longer use characters. That means your Tweets can now be exactly 140 characters and still include a file attachment. So, time to up your GIF game!
