Receive Direct Messages from anyone on Twitter
Twitter has made changes to its direct message (DM) feature, now you can receive private messages from other users, even if you don’t follow them. The feature is available in the form of a new setting, which is turned off by default.
If you have enabled the aforementioned setting and want to stop user(s) from sending you DMs, you can do so by blocking them. The changes, which are rolling out worldwide, also include a new DM button on profile pages of people you can send messages to – the button will only be available to iPhone and Android users.
