It would appear that today Twitter began enforcing a 140 character limit on DMs. To my knowledge their was never a limit enforced before, and even Twitter.com would show up to 255 characters of a DM. Some Twitter clients, including mine, supported >140 char DMs and now I'm seeing people really upset that they can't send longer messages any more.
To me this was a significant change and should have been announced to the developer community prior to being made. -Orian -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk?hl=en
