Fed up of receiving unsolicited direct messages in your Twitter’s direct message box? Now, the micro-blogging giant has introduced a filter to weed out this mess forever. A report published in tech magazine The Verge says that Twitter has added a new feature to filter Twitter DMs from unknown followers.
Twitter DM Filter To Block Anonymous Direct Messages
With this feature in place, direct messages from the followers unknown to you will be stacked in ‘Requests’ in the new message tab inbox. The feature is currently available on Twitter for iOs and Android apps, and will hit Twitter for Desktop users soon.
If your DM settings allow direct messages from unknown followers to appear in your message box, you can now select one of the options asking ‘Delete’ or ‘Accept’ those messages.
Until the receiver accepts the message, sender won’t be able to know whether or not receiver has seen the message.
To recall, Sometimes back, witter launched a customizable Direct Message Card for the businesses to help them promote and share bots in direct messages.
