Zgodilo se je. Twitter se je odločil, da bo svojim uporabnikom omogočil pisanje daljših zasebnih sporočil in je s tem ukinil omejitev 140 znakov, kot je bila do sedaj.

Kaj to pomeni? V bistvu, da se zaveda, da se ljudje dopisujejo preko privatnih sporočil in da je omejitev 140 znakov, kot je bila do sedaj, povsem nepotrebna. V bistvu bi moral Twitter že od vsega začetka ponujati to možnost – res je, da ljudje preko Twitter DM sporočil komuniciramo zelo na kratko, vendar včasih, za kakšno razlago, pa potrebujemo več znakov.

Ali se s to potezo resno podaja v bitko s Facebook chatom, pa bomo še videli čez čas. Definitivno mi je všeč, da ni več te omejitve.

Obstajajo pa druge omejitve, ki se jih mogoče niti ne zavedamo (vir):

  • Direct messages (daily): The limit is 1,000 messages sent per day.
  • Tweets: 2,400 per day. The daily update limit is further broken down into smaller limits for semi-hourly intervals. Retweets are counted as Tweets.
  • Changes to account email: Four per hour.
  • Following (daily): The technical follow limit is 1,000 per day.
  • Following (account-based): Once an account is following 2,000 other users, additional follow attempts are limited by account-specific ratios.

Tole pa so zapisali na blogu (vir):

You may be wondering what this means for the public side of Twitter. In a word, nothing. 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.

We’ll begin rolling out this change today across our Android and iOS apps, on twitter.com, TweetDeck, and Twitter for Mac. It will continue to roll out worldwide over the next few weeks. If you can’t wait to try out longer Direct Messages, be sure you’re using the latest versions of our apps so you get the update right away. Sending and receiving Direct Messages via SMS will still be limited.
