Sending DMs Become More Easy With New Twitter Update
The Twitter update is experimenting with a new feature that will allow users to send direct messages from tweets. With this feature, you can skip using the DM button on your Twitter profile. This feature is currently available for specific IOS users. This new update of Twitter is not getting a positive response from the users. Anyone who listens about it is not showing a positive attitude.
The company has explained that this new feature is for the convenience of the users. This feature will allow the users to start conversations directly from the timeline instead of going into the user’s profile.
Now this facility will allow us to skip a step, but it is also a new way of getting more susceptible to harassment
American Lawyer Eliza Orlins pointed out this in her reply to Twitter’s statement. She said that if you offer something like this, which allows us to DM someone too easily, will make us more susceptible to harassment. And also allow some users to send unrequested DMs easily. She also requested to provide a safety feature. So that a person can turn on or off this new DM feature.
It is possible that this feature can benefit close friends, but for any other purpose this feature is a very easy way to send unrequested messages to strangers. For someone who is famous this feature will prove to be a horrible idea. As their inbox will get filled with lots of uninvited messages.

Why do we really need DMs?
DM facility for the users is introduced to connect with someone they want. This feature works very well if you don’t know the basic details of a person to reach them. But if they spent a lot of time on Twitter then you can directly send a DM and wait for their reply. By the method, it is very much possible to have a conversation with the person you want.
One more benefit of DMs is that you can share tweets directly if you don’t want them to share on your timeline. Just tap on the share icon under tweets and send them directly via Direct Messages.
