Twitter hints at messaging moves

DM fail

The failure I found with DMs was insufferably long delivery times. I'd send a DM to SWMBO, and she'd be notified of it (official Twitter clients for both of us) 30 minutes to an hour later.

It would be marvellous if you're paying per-SMS but can find some free WiFi to scrounge; but the lack-of-instantness killed any claim to instant-messaging.

Of course, it may have changed in the last 30 months.
