Users can now chat onin a single Direct Message, and likely still have some characters left over. This change is another big step towards making the private side of Twitter even more powerful and fun.


Twitter has eliminated the 140-character limit for DM, and users can now exchange messages privately of up to 10,000 characters – with the idea being that Direct Messages should seem limitless! Twitter aims to improve users’ messaging experience to give them the real estate to express themselves more freely and getting rid of the 140 character limit is just another step in that direction.


Private messaging is definitely a core part of the Twitter experience, and earlier in 2015, Twitter launched Group Direct Messages, where multiple users could chat at once and any user could message another user privately irrespective of the fact that they might not be following each other. The aim of these changes is to help users connect more easily and directly on Twitter with other users, causes and businesses they care about most.


Twitter aims to improve the messaging experience of users to enable them to express themselves freely with limitless boundaries. There is incredible content on Twitter every day, from breaking news to live events and the aim is to create an experience that allows users to discuss powerful moments in an environment they’re comfortable with. The aim is to make the private side of Twitter just as fulfilling as the public side.
