It is now official that twitter 140 character limits in direct message (DM) has been removed. If you are regular user on twitter, you may have noticed that something is gone, and what is that? It is the limitation of 140 characters. Check your Direct Messages now to see the great change. You can now chat on (and on) in a single Direct Message, and likely still have some characters space left over.
The extension of the Direct Messages character will let you have unlimited private conversations about the memes, news, movements, and events that unfold on Twitter. Each of the hundreds of millions of Tweets sent across Twitter every day is an opportunity for you to spark a conversation about what’s happening in your world. That’s why we’ve made a number of changes to Direct Messages over the last few months. Today’s change is another big step towards making the private side of Twitter even more powerful and fun.
"We want to make sure you can really fluidly move between public and private."
You need to take note that this change will not affect public tweets, the 140 character limit stays the same they are today, rich with commentary as well as photos, videos, links, Vines, gifs, and emoji. You can check it out today across Android and iOS apps, on twitter.com, TweetDeck, and Twitter for Mac.
Happy tweeting !
