As social media continues to evolve, Twitter is making a change to its platform.

FOX's Chris Foster reports: 

Twitter users will still have 140 characters per tweet to say what they want to say. But some things are now not going to count against that limit, like other users' names in replies, and media attachments.

It'll also be easier to re-tweet oneself to get something out there again.

Twitter says the changes will take a few months to kick in, to give partner developers time to work them all into their products.
