Twitter ends 140-character limit for sending direct messages

  • Starting Wednesday, the micro-blogging site Twitter lifted the 140-character limit for its 300 million-plus users to send direct messages, an Indian-origin Twitter official has announced.

    In a post on the official Twitter blog, Twitter product manager Sachin Agarwal wrote: "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."

    While Twitter is largely a public experience, Direct Messages let you have private conversations about the memes, news, movements, and events that unfold on Twitter. (Source: IANS)
