Since the creation of Twitter there has been a unique way to create statuses and direct messages. You were only allowed to use 140 characters, that made Twitter different from the other social media outlets.
Twitter has now branched out and added a few more characters to your thirst trap. They have removed 140 characters from the direct messages because they want you to succeed just in time for cuffing season. Imagine all the things you can say to your “future bad” now that you don’t have the big 140 blocking you.
Sachin Agarwal, product manager for DMs, stated that the removal of the 140 characters was the “number 1 request.” For all you thirst trappers you now have a whopping 10,000 characters to say how you feel to the one you’ve been liking and retweeting for so long. So go along now, be great, and use those characters.
