Starting today, tweets sent with a URL will be reduced to 118 characters, or 117 for https links!

In short, the condensed links now take up a bit more space, leaving you with a little less space to add commentary with them. In total, the update represents a two-character drop per tweet.

Applications that use wrapped lengths are required to accommodate the new lengths starting Wednesday.
