TWITTER has finally offered users more characters, well in direct messages at least.
The social media platform has now lifted its character limit to allow for in-depth conversations.
Tony Broderick, Head of TV Partnerships, Twitter Australia said the move would be welcomed by Twitter users.
“With so many breaking news stories and interesting events happening on Twitter every day, we want to make it easier for our users to have extended conversations around these amazing moments through private conversations with smaller, more personal audiences,” he told news.com.au
“By increasing the character limit our users can now dive deeper into Twitter conversations about a trending hashtag, a great video they’ve seen or an outrageous moment on #TheBachelorAU, all within the same app and without limitation”
For those hoping this is the first step to remove the character limit from the public side of Twitter, the company has some bad news.
“Tweets will continue to be the 140 characters they are today, rich with commentary as well as photos, videos, links, Vines, gifs, and emoji. So, start working on those sonnets,” Twitter wrote in a blog.
The changes will start rolling out today across all platforms.
