Explaining Twitter, using Twitter, and putting more value in your tweets officially got easier today Sept 19th.  What happened exactly?  Well you can’t tweet more than 140 character still (Thank god they didn’t change that) but now you can use all of those 140 characters no matter if you’re posting a photo, a video, a quote tweet and even Periscope live videos!

Twitter tweeted today Sept 19th:
“Say more about what’s happening! Rolling out now: photos, videos, GIFs, polls, and Quote Tweets no longer count toward your 140 characters.”

Why is this a big deal?  Well you can watch my short 140 second Twitter video below or my 5 min Periscope live stream to fully understand why I believe this is a MASSIVELY GREAT CHANGE for the future of twitter…

Remember Twitter has changed my life both professionally and personally and I believe the power of Twitter is that:
