Micro-blogging platform Twitter is testing a new feature to filter spam and abusive messages from your Direct Message (DM) inbox.
“Unwanted messages aren”t fun. So we”re testing a filter in your DM requests to keep those out of sight, out of mind,” Twitter Support posted on Friday.
Currently, Twitter allows users to set their DM inbox open to receive messages from anyone.
“This new experiment will test a filter that will move unwanted messages, including those with offensive content or spam, to a separate tab,” reports TechCrunch.
