But now, Jordan's username is removed from the limit.
Redesigned replies surfaced in October, when some beta testers complained that they had made Twitter harder to read. Twitter might also feel the same way about the format of its tweets, which is why this particular change has not been touched with a ten-feet pole.
It's a system that evolved over time. A new format for replies isn't going to singlehandedly save Twitter, of course. Tests showed people who had the new design replied more, Twitter says.

Excluding them from the reply is as easy as unchecking the box next to their username. Usually only a handful of users could pile into a tweet (are you seeing the canoe imagery now?) before the 140 character limit.
"So you have more characters to have conversations", he said. By removing the names from a tweet, the extra characters can be used in a longer response.
Today's move was anticipated, but few people knew when it would happen.
