While tweets will preserve the 140-character limit, Direct Messages will expand to accommodate up to 10,000 characters, so that there’s no need to constrain yourself when chit-chatting with your pals. Don’t just rush out to DMs now though, the update will come next month, in July.

This is the second update performed by Twitter this year; the first one was the option to send group messages. Back then, we had analysed what this feature could mean to marketers around the globe, so we are pretty sure that they will be really appreciative of this new update which helps them transmit longer branded messages.

The only piece of news to shadow this exciting update is that Twitter CEO Dick Costolo stepped down, giving his place to the platform’s founder, Jack Dorsey.
