Twitter allows all your pesky stalkers to Direct Message you, without you following them

without comments

Wouldn’t you just love it if anyone using Twitter could send you a direct message, whether you follow them or not? It was a rhetorical question, of course you would not like that, imagine getting a million spam messages per day. Point proven.

Twitter has started experimenting with a new feature that will allow users to allow anyone using Twitter to send them Direct Messages, whether they follow said person or not. Now of course it would lighten everyone’s timelines from brands constantly interacting with every single human being alive trying to solve their queries and adding a fullstop, a greeting or anything else before the persons handle. Now let’s look at the cons. Paedophiles get easy access to kids using Twitter. Spammers can harass loads of people that would otherwise have been pretty difficult to do. All of your exes or stalkers can now constantly send you messages, making your phone sing with notifications just as you were about to dose off.

So. Yes, the feature has to be enabled by the user first, but I would not recommend it, I already get enough DM spam, from everyone I follow, now imaging if all of the 200,000,000+ Twitter users could message you…
