Twitter users, rejoice – your capacity to write at length within the direct message feature of the popular social media platform is now expanded.
On Thursday, the San Francisco based company announced that they would do away with the 140-character limit for direct messages in a post on their website for developers.
The direct messages are essentially messages to another Twitter user that are private.
Sachin Agwaral, the product manager for this feature of the application, stated the following in the post: “We’ve done a lot to improve Direct Messages over the past year and have much more exciting work on the horizon.”
The new change comes in the wake of another Twitter change that will now allow users to combat trolls collectively.
The new tweak to Direct Messages will come into effect next month.
