Twitter Now Allows You to Receive Direct Messages From Any Twitter User
Twitter has allowed users who follow each other to send direct messages to each other, or for users to send direct messages to accounts that follow them. Now, Twitter has rolled out an option to ease the use of direct messages.
A new setting, that appears to be out over the past week, allows Twitter users to receive direct messages from any follower. “If you check this option, any Twitter user that follows you will be able to send you a DM, regardless of whether you decide to follow them back,” is a option than can be enabled or disabled according to the user preference.
This is not a major update, but can be beneficial among all Twitter users. The new direct messages option can be enabled from the main settings page at Twitter.com. It appears to be rolling out to accounts at the moment so it might not be available to every user soon.
