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.

OnLeaks:

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.
