Say goodbye to the days of masterfully forgoing hundreds of years of grammar rules in the name of completing a thought in 140 characters on Twitter, at least in your direct messages! Twitter has announced Direct Messages will no longer be capped at 140 characters.
Earlier this year the social media site announced that a new functionality was in place to allow users to receive private communications from anyone, whether they follow them or not.
The cap limit is now set at 10,000 characters (can you even imagine how many cry face emojis fit in a 10,000 character-limit message?!). The change will be rolled out in July, though no official date has been announced.
Sadly, the change doesn’t change the character limit for Tweets, which will stay at the traditional 140 characters (lame).
