Twitter Removing 140 Character Limit On Direct Messages Starting In July
Twitter is an amazing social platform without any doubt, but one of it’s one issues is the 140 character limit. Sure, it prevents rants from going on, and on, and on, but it also limits how you can reply to tweets or make a point. While that’s not changing on the front end, it is changing in Direct Messaging.
Beginning in July, Twitter will be removing the 140 character limit in direct messages. So while on the main portion of Twitter, you’re still going to be focusing on keeping things short, you can now send messages to other users without having to keep things short. Personally I’ve never understood why this limit was there, but it’s great to see this wall being removed.
