PSA: URLs in tweets now eat a couple more characters

Jamie Rigg , @jmerigg

The dreaded day is upon us, as Twitter has followed through with its plan to increase the maximum length of wrapped links. So, from now on, you've got a few less characters to play with if you want to share an URL with the world: links of the http kind now take up 22 characters instead of 20, and https links hog 23 characters instead of 21. Forget the " wrapped" part -- the reduction comes into force when any URL is included in a tweet, and you can't trick it with shortened links from sites like, so u'll jus need 2b a lil more concise. Even Neo can't mess with the laws of the Twitter.
