Now you can receive and respond to DM to anyone on twitter

Tweeples can now receive and respond to Direct Messages from other users regardless of whether or not they follow each other.


Till date, users could send Direct Messages to only those users who follow them and they could reply to it if the sender follows the receiver. To exchange Direct Messages both users had to follow each other.

As per the new system of Direct Messaging, users would be allowed to send DMs, without the need to “follow”. Twitter mentions that the direct messages will operate for anyone who chooses to opt in to the feature.

To activate this feature, users need to adjust the following settings using the Twitter App for iOS or Android.
