According to recent reports, Twitter is considering the possibility of imposing limits on the amount of direct messages (DMs) that users who do not have a Blue account can send in a given day.
A recent tweet by a leaker named Alessandro Paluzzi discussed this new development. In it, he stated that Twitter is working on putting a cap on the amount of direct messages that users may send to one another before making them sign up for Twitter Blue, the platform’s paid membership service.
When non-Twitter Blue users exceed the limit that has been established for them, according to a screenshot that was supplied by the person who leaked the information, they would see a notification that says “Get verified to send more messages.”
According to a report by sources, the notification notifies users that they have hit the daily limitation for direct messages and asks them to join up for Twitter Blue so that they may continue using the messaging feature.
The maximum has been increased to 500
Paluzzi believes that if the functionality is pushed out, the restriction on the number of direct messages that may be sent in a day may be lowered; however, the limit is now set at 500. This change is being made with the intention of encouraging users to subscribe to Twitter Blue in order to keep their direct message capabilities beyond the aforementioned restriction.
In a separate but related piece of news, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, recently made an announcement that the site is planning to roll out an upgrade that would restrict the ability to send direct messages (DMs) to those who do not follow the sender.
This update will be reserved for Twitter Blue users. Those that pay for the premium service will most likely have access to a greater degree of control over their data and privacy protections thanks to this feature.
Musk also said that Twitter intends to reimburse content producers on the site for the adverts that are featured within their answers. This action is a step towards acknowledging the value and contribution of content producers, and it provides them with the opportunity to potentially monetize their work.
These changes are not yet official confirmations from Twitter itself, at least not as of right now. However, the disclosures and remarks made by Elon Musk show that Twitter is actively investigating various techniques to improve the user experience, give more chances for content producers on the site, and reward subscriptions to Twitter Blue.
