Twitter removes 140 character limit on Direct Messages

Twitter is famous for its 140 character limit. It is this limit that makes users keep their Tweets short and simple. That’s the beauty of Twitter.
While 140 char limit is great for Tweets, it is too short for Direct Messages. And perhaps that’s the reason why not many people use the DM feature of Twitter. That’s why I’m glad that Twitter is now removing the 140 characters limit on Direct Messages.
You can now send DM up to 10,000 characters. Hopefully with this new limit and the addition of Group DM recently will increase the number of people using the DM feature.
Twitter has began rolling out the changes to Direct Messages across both Android and iOS apps, on twitter.com, TweetDeck, and Twitter for Mac, and will continue to roll out worldwide over the coming weeks. So don’t panic if you still can’t send DM more than 140 char. They are coming soon.
