Twitter will count all emojis equally towards 280-character limit


Now, irrespective of which modified emoji you use, it will be counted equally towards Twitter's total character limit of 280.

Previously, Twitter would count modified emoji, based on gender and skin tone, as higher in characters than the default ones.

Now, as part of its latest update, Twitter announced through its developer forum that it will count all emoji equally, including the ones with gender and skin tone modifiers, leaving room for users to express more liberally.

It was last year that Twitter increased its original character limit of 140 to 280 characters.
