Twitter removes 140 character limit from direct messages

Twitter’s 140 Character Limit on Direct Messages is Gone

The feature will be available worldwide within coming few weeks.

Twitter has finally lifted the 140 character limit from direct messages through update that was originally expected to come in July. From now onwards, you can write up to 10,000 characters in your direct messages, so chances are you will run out of words before reaching this limit.

“Today’s change is another big step towards making the private side of Twitter even more powerful and fun”, said Sachin Agarwal, PM for Direct Messages at Twitter.

The feature is set to support all platforms, including Twitter website, TweetDeck, Twitter for Mac, iOS and Android, but it will take a few weeks before all the Twitter users can try it.

You must update Twitter to its latest version for getting hands on the feature.

Twitter rolled out several improvements and new features in direct messages lately, such as group messaging, photo messaging, sending links, sharing tweets in messages etc.

The update is limited to direct messages only, and there is no chance that Twitter will drop the 140 character limit from its tweets, at least not in the near future.
