Twitter Announced it has Shortened Tweets with URLs From 140 Characters to 117
by Brandon J. Carver




If you use the popular social media network Twitter often, you may have noticed that tweets containing URLs have been shortened from 140 characters to 117, or 116 with a secure URL address (https:// vs. http://).

Twitter Announced it has Shortened Tweets with URLs From 140 Characters to 117
If you have preloaded tweets generated in your web pages, websites, or blogs, this change by Twitter may adversely affect some of your content and require changes to databases or across several text files or web pages.

Twitter announced this reduction in character limited from 140 characters to 117 or 116 last year, but new character policy has been implemented.

(SEO) Search engine optimization and social media visibility can also be impacted severely by these changes if steps are not taken to correct posts that will be truncated by the new size limits. Important key words or key word phrases that are at the end of these tweets can cause a lost to web site owners trying to get their contact found quickly via Twitter searches and organic content page ranking in the search engines from social media posts.

There may be other instances in your web page, website, or blog programming where the Twitter character limit for tweets might require editing or other reworking for (SEO) search engine optimization.

I would like to hear of any other ways that the Twitter character limit reduction will impact your social media marketing and organic page ranking in the search engines from social media posts! Please share:
