Back in June Twitter announced their plans to finally remove their 140-character limit for direct messages – and this week Twitter has finally began rolling out the update. Regular tweets still have their 140-character limit – however the new change to direct messages is intended, as Twitter says, to allow you to “Speak your mind. All of it“.
The new limit, if you’re wondering, is 10,000 characters. Quiet the increase from 140 eh?
