Twitter is adding a filter to your incoming messages. From now on, people you don’ t know have to ask before sliding into your DMs.
According to Twitter’s support page:
When you enter a Requested conversation, you have the option to Accept or Delete the conversation, which is pretty self-explanatory. Any pictures, GIFs, or media the account has sent you won’ t be visible until you hit Accept.
According to TechCrunch, the feature has been in testing and “rolling out gradually” for some time now, so some users might already have it.
I imagine this is a step to curb Twitter’s notorious reputation for abuse. Just like filtering blocked users out of notifications, it’s one of those features that makes so much sense you almost can’ t believe Twitter didn’ t already have it from the beginning.
