Twitter Reducing Some Tweets to Just 117 Characters

Feel a hundred and forty people isn’t enough to say what you want in a tweet? Get completely ready for 117.
Starting up in February, tweets that include URLs will be diminished to 118 figures, 117 for https hyperlinks. Even though that may seem to be like a massive drop, the adjust represents a two-character fall per tweet from what you are at present capable to send when a hyperlink is included.
Introduced Thursday on Twitter's developer site, the adjustment is due to some forthcoming adjustments in Twitter’s t.co url wrapper. The revision extends the highest duration of t.co wrapped hyperlinks from 20 to 22 figures for non-https URLs and from 21 to 23 figures for https URLs.

What that implies: When you tweet out hyperlinks that Twitter shortens, these hyperlinks will now just take up a small far more area, reducing the content you'll be in a position to add to the concept.
The announcement this 7 days was intended as a heads up for developers, in order to give them time to update their applications ahead of the adjust will take place.
Twitter customers will not see the change go into impact till Feb. twenty, 2013.

Do you believe the two-character reduction will make a distinction in how you tweet?
