Twitter no longer counts usernames as characters in replies

Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.

Other changes include actually removing the usernames from the display of the tweet-thread. It makes sense and looks a lot cleaner but it again kicks 3rd party Twitter apps in the balls.
