Twitter Removes 140-Character Limit From Direct Messages

Two months ago, Twitter told us that it would soon be removing its 140-character limit from direct messages. Today, they came through and actually did remove it. Now, when you send private messages to another user, you can go on and on and on and likely never run out of room, unless you happen to have more than 10,000 letters to type.

The 140-character limit does still live on in regular Tweets, though, so don’t take to Twitter today hoping to post a book to your timeline. Again, this limit change only relates to direct messages.

The new limit removal starts rolling out today on Android, iOS,, TweetDeck, and Twitter for Mac.
