Twitter’s 140 character limit for direct messages (DMs) is a thing of the past now

While I think the 140 character limit on Twitter is cool and makes direct messages concise and straight to the point, the majority of the social media outlet users wanted the limit to be gone.

If you’ve checked your Direct Messages today, you may have noticed that something’s missing: the limitation of 140 characters. You can now chat on (and on) in a single Direct Message, and likely still have some characters left over.

Twitter announced that they’re going away with the restriction starting today. Updates will be soon be rolling out to the Android app (and iOS too). Instead of 140 characters, your DMs can now contain up to 10,000 characters – which isn’t bad but it should be enough to share long (hopefully not boring) messages.

Tweets on the other side will still have the 140 limit. Twitter says that they will continue rollin gout the changes worldwide over the next few weeks.
