Now DM your Twitter Followers in 10000 Characters

Twitter is awesome for status updates; going to conference hall / meeting in cafeteria / come to shopping mall / let’s have lunch together this Sunday. Once built for such types of quick status updates, the microblogging website is expanding its horizons now. Nearly a month back Twitter has enabled comments with Retweets. I often felt the use of this feature while retweeting tweets from tweeters like HBR blogs and alike.


Next big thing that coming from Twitter is removal of 140 characters from DMs (Direct Messages). Come July 2015 and you will be able to DM your friends in 10000 characters reports Twitter’s Developers Blog

Twitter wants you to use it more. Status updates in 140 characters in not any less. But at times you need to switch applications when in need to write longer messages. Writing everything precisely in 140 characters in a DM to your colleagues is quite impossible especially if its something official related a project.

You can ask someone to join you in cafeteria but to question whether your friend wants black coffee or a latte is something undoable in 140 set character limits. You can not write a Latte as Late or Lat. That is way to much confusing for many.

Wait till July when you can add a Burger with a Latte!

Whether YouTube Messenger will stand test of the times

Instant messaging, free calling and video chats made the internet popular. People love to talk. Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL turned out internet media mougal. Whatsapp gone viral it generated sales for smartphone companies.
Google Chat and Hangout did not tasted success indeed it became just another product.
In the coming days more video content will be created, both private and public. Looks like Google now wants from people to spend much time on YouTube. And this is why they have added chat features. It's very basic for now. But personally I feel if more people will start using it, company will add more fun features so you don't need go outside YouTube.
However, technology is still an hindrance. For majority of smartphone users multitasking is not seemless due to slow internet speed and average phone memory and processor speed.
Cell phone prices are going down but purchasing of many people is not moving very fast.
In such a circumstances it's not pretty easy to say if YouTube mes…
