You will be able to tell your life story on Twitter, write a short essay or share that entertaining experience with your friend, as you can use more than 140 characters for direct messaging on the platform.
All users will be able to have extended private conversations about everything they are interested in, without limiting their words and giving up their storytelling abilities. Everything can be discussed on a detailed playground and personal links on Twitter will most likely deepen once with the new rule. Twitter raises direct messaging limit to 10.000 characters, in an attempt to retain more users and grow a bit more in popularity.
Direct messaging for groups is a feature recently launched by Twitter, enabling multiple users to chat at once, while any user can message another privately, regardless of the fact that they might not be following each other. Twitter is now on a stairway to progress, as competitors as Facebook allow users to message wherever, whenever and from whichever platform, either desktop or mobile. Efficiency takes adaptability and Twitter is starting to understand that and apply it accordingly.
Expanding the direct message character limit was the number one request Twitter was getting from users. People always want to feel free to say what is on their mind and express themselves without boundaries. Sachin Agarwal, DM’s product manager declared that the expansion of DM characters is also aimed at offering a helping hand to brands that use Twitter as a customer service platform. The new expanded limit could help businesses solve issues with customers on a faster pace.
They clearly aim to reach a wider audience and expand user engagement but this is nevertheless a struggle, considering the very tight competition on the social platforms market. Many years will pass until Twitter reaches the popularity and power of Facebook that is constantly conquering new territories of content and manages to engage increasing amounts of users.
Until great things happen, Twitter’s present goal is to make the private side of their platform just as popular, efficient and fulfilling as the public side, which works extremely well, both business wise and user oriented.
