Twitter users will soon have more flexibility in writing tweets because the company plans to stop including photos and links as part of its 140-character limit, according to a Bloomberg report.
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.
