Twitter scraps 140-character limit on direct messages

The social media site has finally removed the 140-character limit on its DMs, making it the first aspect of the social media platform free of any word limit.
The feature is rolling out globally, with Twitter saying the aim is to allow users to 'express themselves' more freely.

Direct Messages - also know as 'DMs' - is the private messaging aspect of the Twitter platform where users can communicate directly with one another away from the public area of the site.
The micro-blogging site's co-founder and interim chief executive Jack Dorsey recently admitted the service was not doing well enough when it came to making the site better for users and attracting new interest.
