The days of condensing our thoughts into 140-character phrases on Twitter are gone -- over direct message, at least. Twitter just announced that DMs can now span up to 10,000 characters.

have private conversations about the memes, news, movements, and events
that unfold on Twitter," a blog post on Twitter's website explains. But let's get real: ladies, your inboxes will probably look more like this. What fresh hell is this, indeed. On the bright side, guilt-tripping trolls will now leave your phones buzzing every ten seconds or so instead of every two.
