Twitter is killing a sacred cow. The 140 character limit will be removed from Direct Messages. Twitter makes it clear that public Tweets will stay at the hated/loved 140 character limit. This Twitter feature news comes on the heels of Twitter's CEO stepping down.

Twitter's Sachin Agarwal told developers that in July that Twitter will remove the 140 character limit in Direct Messages. The removal of the limit opens new possibilities to communicate via Twitter. Users basically can send "emails" via Twitter to users. Will this be a revolution? It depends if Twitter users are adopting this new freedom. 

The freedom is limited at 10,000 characters. Now trolls can really express themselves and fans can tell their favorite celebs what they really feel about them. @KateUpton ....

Twitter just yesterday introduce a new feature allowing user to share block list. Now the company just has to find out how to make money. Twitter's stock lost trades about 40% under its all time high of $55.99. Twitter's co-founder Jack Dorsey has as interims CEO his work cut out. A new Twitter CEO will have to focus entirely on figuring out how to make money and grow subscribers quickly.
