Twitter will stop counting links and pictures towards its 140-character limit within the next two weeks in order to give users more flexibility when using the site. 

Right now Twitter shortens all links to 23 characters and images take up 24 characters, which effectively decreases the character limit to 93 for a lot of twitter users. This change will help satisfy twitter users that wish to have a higher character count while maintaining Twitter's short form nature that helps to differentiate it from other competing social media platforms.

This step is part of twitter's move to become a more flexible and content rich platform,  with plans in the works to provide more options for streaming video and live events as well as encourage users to post more media on their posts.

That's good for twitter. There stock is really hurting and investors are getting tired of them for constantly being last place amongst social media competitors.
Personally I don't even use it, so don't matter!Quote
