Twitter Finally Removes DM Character Limit

Posted on 8.12.2015

After announcing it was eliminating the 140-character limit for direct messages (DMs) back in June, Twitter has finally implemented the change.

That’s right, Twitter users can now type as many characters as they would like into DMs. According to the social network, the change is a big step toward making the private side of Twitter even more powerful and fun.

It’s important to note that the update follows a series of changes made to DMs recently, including opening up DMs so they can be sent to anyone on the social network (previously, users had to follow each other to send and receive DMs). Additionally, Twitter added group DMs in January.

The update is currently rolling out and should be available worldwide in the next few weeks.
