Twitter finally drops the 140-character limit from direct messages | The Verge.

Twitter’s 140-character limit is going away, at least for the private messages you send on the service. As promised, the company said today that it will now allow messages of up to 10,000 characters in its mobile apps, desktop apps, and the web. It will also work in third-party apps, such as Tweetbot, the company says. “It’s the No. 1 request we get from folks,” said Sachin Agarwal, product manager for DMs, in an interview. “They want to be able to say what’s on their mind and be themselves.”
