Twitter Lengthens Replies, Drops Eggs

Twitter (tweet):

Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.


Who you are replying to will appear above the Tweet text rather than within the Tweet text itself, so you have more characters to have conversations.


When reading a conversation, you’ll actually see what people are saying, rather than seeing lots of @usernames at the start of a Tweet.


Cool but this put a stop to the .@username trick... 😕 How to display replies to all our followers in our timeline now?...

Twitter (via MacRumors):

For the past seven years, everyone who has created an account on Twitter starts out with their default profile photo as an egg. This was a playful way to reference how eggs hatch into birds that send all the Tweets you see on Twitter! But now it’s time for something new – something that encourages people to upload their own photos for more personal expression. So today, we’re introducing a new default profile photo.
