Twitter Ups Its DM Limit
Keep in mind that this new limit is only for private DMs and doesn't affect the 140 character limit on public tweets. As a result, the new DM limit might be moot for those that use Twitter mainly as a promotional tool to broadcast news to a fanbase, although it will be a benefit if you're using the new Group DM feature.
The change is set to roll out within the next couple of weeks across both Android and IOS platforms, as well as Twitter.com, Tweetdeck, and Twitter for Mac.
In other Twitter news, the company has made available every public tweet ever posted in Twitter's 9 year history to the social tracking service Gnip. It's just one more reason to always stay civil on Twitter, because those nasty tweets can someday be resurrected.
