Twitter to eliminate photos and links in character count
The social media platform has faced stagnant user growth. Months earlier, Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey said the company would simplify its product in an effort to attract new users.
“We think there’s a lot of opportunity in our product to fix some broken windows that we know are inhibiting growth,” Dorsey said during a February earnings call.
Links currently take up to 23 characters of a tweet, limiting the amount of commentary that users can offer when sharing articles or other content.
Twitter has faced stagnant user growth, and shares have fallen more than 70 percent over the past year.
Twitter declined to comment on the report.
