Well, Twitter just made setting P easier.
With the website’s latest update, you don’t have to be following a person or be followed back to send them a direct message.
The new feature is optional, and in order to allow private messages from anyone, log into your Twitter account and visit the “privacy and settings” page. Scroll down, check the box that says “Receive Direct Messages from anyone” and click “save changes.”
Users who don’t want to receive a private message from a particular person can block them or simply unfollow them and delete the conversation.
“We’re rolling out these changes starting today to all users around the world,” the company said in a blog post. “And we have lots more in the works to improve Direct Messages on Twitter, so that the private side of Twitter is just as fulfilling as the public side.”
