Links on Twitter won’t be counted in the 140 characters anymore! This makes total sense to me. I love seeing tweeting being tweaked so it will twist in the twilight of the twinkly twoon.

Update: Mashable updated their article. The URLs will continue to be counted but they will always be exactly 20 characters so it’ll be easier to figure it out. The changes will take place some time this summer.
