Splitting of Direct messages

We have improved an algorithm of posting Twitter Direct messages as new Tweets.

From now on, single direct message can be split into two or more Tweets, if its size exceeds the limit of 140 symbols. 


The necessity of splitting the direct message can occur when "Hide author names" filter is not applied. In this case, the Twitter name of the author will be added in front of the direct message text in the following format:


.@AuthorTwitterName: the original text of the direct message
