Twitter drops 140-character limit from Direct Messages. 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 in a single Direct Message, and likely still have some characters left over.
Twitter begin rolling out this change today across its Android and iOS apps, on twitter.com, TweetDeck, and Twitter for Mac. It will continue to roll out worldwide over the next few weeks. If you can't wait to try out longer Direct Messages, be sure you're using the latest versions of Twitter apps so you get the update right away. Sending and receiving Direct Messages via SMS will still be limited.
