Twitter takes another swipe at easing 140 character limit

Next time you get into a Twitter argument, you'll have more space for insults. But you might be confused as to who exactly you're yelling at.

Starting Thursday, Twitter handles in replies will no longer count toward the 140 character limit on tweets.

To make that happen, the handles -- a person's Twitter name preceded by the @ sign -- are actually being removed from reply tweets altogether. When you reply to people, the handle will be displayed above the tweet in small text. You must click to see the names of any additional people included in the conversation. Usernames in original, non-reply tweets still count toward the character limit.
