For my part, I think that lack good customer Twitter for Windows. The most beautiful and most functional are concentrated in OS X, the operating system of Apple as the platform of the windows is out of the party.

The Twitter allows, through its API, developers to create the most diverse applications for the platform and thus some of them can earn good money with the applications of sale.

The 140 – character limit of Twitter is becoming more flexible. The social network announced on Tuesday (24) that certain content, such as images, videos, polls and arrobas users will no longer be counted on the edge, allowing you to best use very little space you have to write your tweets.
The changes also reflect the way people interact on Twitter. When you reply to someone’s tweet, starting the message with the @ sign, it will be viewed by all his followers, not just those who follow both profiles. That is, it will not be necessary to do more footlights, as put a point at the beginning of the text. Enough. “@ User” to increase the range of the tweet.

Users and developers are already being notified of the change in the 140-character limit of Twitter, but the new features will only be available “in the coming months.”Remember that the change does not apply to external links, including photos and videos hosted on other companies, which continue to be accounted for and will spend 23 precious characters of your tweet.
And no, you still will not be able to edit your tweets.
