In the hope of drawing a broader user base by filtering and make things easier for its service, direct messages will now no longer have a 140-character limit as announced by Twitter.
To let group messages, and then again to enable messaging between users that don’t follow each other, after expanding the direct message (DM) function earlier, this latest change (which was originally identified to developers in June), without having to switch to a messaging app or email will enable users transition from short public messages to longer private ones.
Product manager Sachin Agarwal said in a blog post that, each of the hundreds of millions of Tweets sent across Twitter every day is a chance for users to trigger a discussion about what’s happening in their world”. He added that, making the private side of Twitter even more powerful and fun, today’s change is another big step towards.
You’d have to be pretty profound to hit the new limit for DMs of 10,000 characters, but public tweets will maintain their 140-character limit.
The company is committed towards making modifications that lower the obstacle to entry for new users and keep its current users tied up. The company’s chief financial officer even accepted recently that Twitter is too tough to use, and there stand in the way of new users getting on their feet easily, there’s plenty of apparently meaningless limitations and problems.
Twitter is planning a redesign called Project Lightning, in addition to streamlining, that enables everyone – even those without a Twitter account – view curated packages of tweets, images and video from live events.
DMs should reach everyone worldwide within the next few weeks, as its deliverance is rolling out to apps and web services now.
