I had always been under the impression that everything had a 140 character limit.

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
