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!

Cost of Smartphone Notifications

Data is cheap now, in fact raw cheap if I compare it from ten years down the line. For the price of a meal or less you get Internet data for almost full month. ISPs has there own ways of making holes in every pocket. No one is spared. Data has become basic need of the times and ISPs making good profits. But question is how much data? Are we not overusing it. Shall there become a time when data will be in danger of becoming extinct and we will need to make campaigns same ways as we do it today for air, water or electricity? Time will give the answer.

Stories are served day and night and we are using data mindlessly without thinking how much we are paying for it. Android Smartphones has added opium to data consumption and Push Notifications given that extra mileage. Many smartphone users subscribe to notifications unknowingly. Once smartphone is hand you get many things which you want or don’t want. There is an impression that I am paying for data only, that too very small sum, smartp…
