Social media giant Twitter took a major step forward last year when it increased the character count limit to 280 characters that gave the users the liberty to express them self a bit more than what was supported by the platform earlier. Now in the latest development in this regard, Twitter shares that the emojis would also count equally towards the character count unlike before where certain emojis depending upon gender, skin tone caused emojis to consume higher character count.
The new update would mean that the users won’t have to worry about using different emojis having that countless towards the character limit and thus making things on the platform much uniform in this regard. As per Andy Piper, who is the global lead developer advocate Andy Piper at Twitter shared in a statement:
"This update marks significant progress for our service, and everyone can now benefit from the additional room to express themselves with more characters..."
