Twitter To Stop Counting Photos And Links In 140-Character Limit

I've never used Twitter enough for this to be an issue for me. Will this rumored change actually affect the way you guys are using Twitter or not?

Twitter Inc. will soon stop counting photos and links in their 140-character limit for tweets, according to a person familiar with the matter. The change could happen in the next two weeks, said the person who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. Links currently take up 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. The company declined to comment.
