New from me on PNConnect:

A Bloomberg report states that Twitter will finally stop counting links and media like photos and videos against the 140 character count. That would free up between 20 and 25 characters for more copy and remove a frustrating restriction from the network since those ~23 characters can make a big difference and, let’s be honest, it makes no sense for links and photos to count against the character limit.
