Leaked Pixel photos, Twitter releases longer tweets and GoPro’s new product!

Leaked Pixel photos, Twitter releases longer tweets and GoPro’s new product!

Plus, why I want the Nexus name and not the Pixel name.

Today's Episode

Twitter has finally issued its “longer tweets.” That’s right, the media in your tweets will not account against your character count. It's been a long time coming. They should have done this years ago. Still, at least we get it now. It's better late than never. In that respect are some rules to it, but, for the most part, the media do not count against it. I am baffled at how long it took them to figure this out. Everyone that uses Twitter always hated that feature. It makes Twitter a little more utilitarian. No longer the anger fist of losing some characters to the media. Let’s rejoice and tweet just about more!
