After originally planning to do so in July, Twitter has finally removed the 140-character limit for Direct Messages on its service. Rolling out today, Twitter users will be able to send DMs with as many characters as they wish, another step for the company to make private communications on its service even better. Everyday, millions of tweets are sent about the news, sports and many other topics, which often times spark private conversations.
The changes only apply to Direct Messages, and tweets will still have the same 140-character limitation that they have always had. To start, the changes will roll out across Twitter's Android and iOS apps, the web, TweetDeck, and Twitter for Mac. The company plans to continue the roll out worldwide over the next few weeks.
We have already tried to see if the official Twitter app for Windows 10 supports the new Direct Message feature but so far it's not available. Hopefully, it will be added soon, along with the other third-party Twitter apps for Windows and Windows Phone.
