What if twitter removed its character limit from DM’s and we were able to send lengthier messages privately to friends on twitter? I’d argue that Facebook messages would immediately have a solid competitor on its hands and arguably, in the long term, so would email. Twitter already integrates with SMS, chat, email and has a plethora of superb mobile apps. Aside from missing group messaging and file sharing features – both of which are surely just around the corner but can be done now via third party tools – we’ve got a solid alternative to email – yes, social email. What’s more, being Twitter, users would instinctively (hopefully) maintain that “keep it short” Twitter mentality when messaging friends.
