There has been some good news for Twitter users everywhere with the announcement that 140 character limits will be getting abolished on direct messages.
The new rules will come into place from July, and after news broke about the change, the Twitter community seem to have taken the news well, with this coming on top of the opt-in choice Twitter users can now select which would allow them to receive a direct message from anyone, even if they did not follow them.

Sadly the character limit for actual tweets will remain in place, so while you can be slightly more elaborate with your direct messages, actually tweeting to the general public will still require a bit of slang, a few punctuation errors and a fair bit of thought if you had a long message in mind.
