Also, when you reply to the tweet the mentions will be shown above and the "Replying to" option will allow you to choose the people in the conversation.
You can tap on "Replying to" to easily see and control who's part of your conversation.
Users will be able to read conversations without obstruction caused otherwise due to usernames crowding tweets and replies.
All these changes made will bring a positive development that will enable improved communication between different users on Twitter making twitter chats more comfortable and understandable.
This update has been rolled on twitter.com as well as on iOS and Android for its mobile app versions. To start with, it has now eased the 140 character limit to exclude handles in replies, on any conversation on its platform. In the event you are included in one of these mega-threads, you can simply mute the conversation. One thing that's remained consistent, though, has been the 140 character limit. Dorsey explained at the time the character limit was originally because lots of tweets were sent via SMS but eventually became what Twitter is about.
Twitter users now have more space in tweets to participate in conversations thanks to a change to the character limit.
In addition to expanding your available characters, Twitter believes that it will be easier to follow conversations when you are no longer distracted by repetitive usernames.
Whenever you reply to an individual or a group of Twitter users, you'll have more characters to work with. Although the micro-blogging firm is sitting on a user base of 300 million, growth has taken a hit in recent years. According to the post, Twitter is constantly looking for ways to make the site more user-friendly and helpful, and this is definitely a small but efficient way of doing that. But earlier it was easy to remove the Twitter handles you didn't want in the reply in a very easy manner. Now, the restriction on Twitter usernames has been removed as well. September of a year ago, it made an exception for media attachments (images, GIFs, videos, polls, and more) and quoted tweets. Twitter has disclosed that usernames of people or @usernames will not be counted in the character limit of Tweets and replies.
