Twitter announced the development in a blog post, saying that it also made changes to the way it display tweets. Earlier, when users have to reply to a group or individual, twitter counted username characters in 140-character limit. "You can tap on 'Replying toâ€¦' to easily see and control who's part of your conversation", he says.
Moreover, in latest update, the names of the people users are replying will be on top of the text of the actual tweet.
The new update makes sure that people can focus more on the conversation and makes twitter much more engaging than before as there is less of clutter and more space to express.
Twitter users-old and new are particularly frustrated at some of the unclear rules surrounding how they compose and send tweets.
Next time you reply to someone on Twitter, you will have more room to do it.
It also did away with the 140 character limit for direct messages.
We reckon that with the onslaught of Instagram, Snapchat and the yet to be launched next big thing, Twitter needs to do more to attract millenials.

Whenever you reply to an individual or a group of Twitter users, you'll have more characters to work with.
Many users took to Twitter to voice their displeasure and questioned the usefulness of the change.

Nine years and three CEOs later, replies on Twitter finally work roughly the way you might expect replies to work on a modern social networking service.
With that off the to-do list maybe Twitter's engineers can start working on letting us edit posts.
The new update comes as part of Twitter's push to give users more flexibility to interact and share messages whist still sticking to its signature 140-character limit. September of past year, it made an exception for media attachments (images, GIFs, videos, polls, and more) and quoted tweets. This can be done by tapping specific names in the small pop-up that appears onscreen after tapping the field. "It's unclear if Twitter understands why many users want the character count lifted in this particular case, so let's spell it out for the company: Having a conversation on Twitter is a frustrating experience", INC wrote.
