Twitter Raises Direct Message Character Limit To 10,000 Characters

With this new update, Twitter is likely to take over Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

 

Twitter has recently raised its character limit on direct messages from 140 to a whopping 10,000 with an aim of taking over the likes of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

As we all know, even though Twitter was pretty famous to share updates, it was not able to take the place of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger when it came to personal conversation.

The main constraint as we all might have faced was the character limit which Twitter had imposed.

But, now, it seems that the micro blogging website wants you to have endless conversations without having to leave the website.

This looks like a great step by the company to play safe with stiff competition around the neck.

However, this update is said to be only applicable to direct messages and Tweets will continue to be limited to 140 characters as they are even today.

Also, this update will certainly not going to change life for regular users, except for those who use Twitter for chats with their followers.

Yet, we may suspect this update to draw in some regular users to use the chat facility.

To recall, Twitter has also recently added the ability to share links and tweets via direct message while also introducing group chat features in it.

However, to conclude, with the new update, Twitter is clearly telling that there is still much more to come.
