Great news for all of us Twitter fans out there.

Twitter is relaxing its 140-character limit. The social network announced on Monday that links to media like photos, GIFs, polls, and videos will no longer count toward the 140-character limit Twitter has had since its inception.

Along with media attachments, a Twitter spokeswoman said the company is also testing not counting “@” replies toward a tweet’s character limit.

Here’s a graph from Twitter that explains the old structure of tweets and the new format:

These changes are in effect now!

Twitter announced these changes in May, and The Verge reported last week that they would be implemented on Monday, September 19.
