Twitter has begun rolling out changes to let people pack more into tweets, subtracting from the character count names of those being replied to in posts. You can also edit who sees your reply by clicking or tapping on "replying to" and removing unwanted handles from the list that appears.
When users reply, the names of the people they are replying to will be on top of the text of the actual tweet, rather than a part of it.
Since Twitter saw some of its users struggle with its character limit, which is why it is most popular for, the social media platform chose to bring a change, another change and before you know it there's another one.
Nearly every month or so Twitter rolls out new changes, pleasing some users and infuriating most others. It'll work the same way if you reply to more than two persons.
Moving forward, whenever you are replying to someone or to multiple people in a tweet, those mentions will be above the tweet, not a part of it.
It also did away with the 140 character limit for direct messages.

One of the biggest social networks of the modern age, there have been various reports over the years as to how Twitter is "dying a slow death". It could also keep users on the site longer, which Twitter badly needs.
This past September, Twitter made another change to the way it counts 140 characters in tweets. While Wall Street will likely praise a move to get rid of a character limit on Twitter, some were reacting negatively to Twitter's announcement Thursday, arguing it could usher in more spam because replies can include a unlimited amount of users.
Twitter has just revealed some attractive ways to provide more ease to its character limit. Excluding them from the reply is as easy as unchecking the box next to their username. Twitter usernames being removed from the 140 character limit is indeed a good change for frequent users of the app who engage in conversations, allowing room for more text.
