Twitter “improves” quoted tweets
Its always terrifying for Twitter users when the company decides to change something – just what has it broken now?
So let’s hope that you used quoted tweets in the same way that the developers do, as what happens has now been changed in the official app, so that when you quote a tweet, it will no longer come out of your character count, but be treated a bit like an attachment -as you can see in the graphic below:

Hopefully Twitter will open this functionality up to third party apps like Tweetbot, so as not to break them further – but we’re not holding our breath.
