Twitter will remove 140 character limit on DMs next month

Applause. Also:

Meanwhile, the micro-blogging platform this week introduced the ability to export and share block lists. So if you share your friend’s hatred for spambots or abusers, import their list into your account and block multiple people at once.

And still more applause. I wonder if the 140 character limit on regular tweets is sacrosanct, or if its days are numbered, too.
