The social network said in a tweet on Monday that photos, videos, polls and GIFs no longer count toward your character total in tweets.

The company first announced the character expansion in May, noting the changes would take place in the coming months.

While it initially said Twitter handles — marked with an “@” symbol — would also be excluded from 140-character limit, it still counts toward the total, as of Monday. The company told CNNMoney it will be updating its change to include @names soon.
