Do the upcoming changes to tweets affect the characters_reserved_per_media value?



Hey guys,

According to Upcoming Changes To Tweets, “a URL at the end of Tweets generated from attaching photos, a video, GIF, poll, Quote Tweet, or DM deep link will … not count towards the character limit.”

Does this also mean that media attached with the media_ids parameter will not count against the character limit?

Currently, if you make a POST to the statuses/update and include a value in the media_ids field, it reduces the available tweet character count. The amount it’s reduced by is given by characters_reserved_per_media from the help/configuration endpoint.

However the tweet change seems designed to address this issue, so will the fix also remove the characters_reserved_per_media limit?
