Twitter Enables Direct Messaging from Followers

Twitter has a new facility coming soon to its platform. It will enable direct messaging from all of your followers. This is a blessing especially for those hungry for breaking news.

The latest sensation to enter the scene from Twitter is the fine art of direct messaging. This is particularly beneficial to people who want to remain informed such as journalists and news anchors. Anyone who happens to be a follower of your Twitter home page may send you a direct message any time. 

Even if you are unconcerned with these followers, they will be able to send their direct messages to your inbox. The system has been simplified this way. All the past hassles of replying and receiving have been thrown aside as so much useless junk. But the option to allow this facility rests squarely in the hands of the user. No one can force you to receive the direct messages without your consent. 

The option of ticking or not ticking the box will limit incoming spam. However, when you consider the opposite choice of opening the floodgates, all sorts of direct messages will arrive in scads in your inbox. Therefore it is a sort of mixed blessing.

While those individuals who need news on an urgent basis will only benefit from this alternative, the introverts will need to limit the ticking of the option of direct messaging. Too much data leads to the phenomenon known as information overload, and it is not healthy for the mind.
