Word Up: Twitter Removing the 140 Character Limit for Direct Messages

“We’ve done a lot to improve Direct Messages over the past year and have much more exciting work on the horizon,” Sachin Agarwal, Twitter’s product manager for Direct Message, wrote. “You may be wondering what this means for the public side of Twitter. Nothing! Tweets will continue to be the 140 characters they are today.”

The announcement comes at the same time as the Chief Executive Officer, Dick Costolo is stepping down.  The change is set to come next month, Twitter execs said Thursday on its website for developers.  Check out the post here. 

Don’t forget to follow us Geeks on Twitter;  Geeks and Beats,  Alan Cross, Micael Hainsworth and myself, Shane Alexander. We play nice in less than 140 characters.
