Microblogging platform Twitter has removed the option to send direct messages to another account directly from the profile page of its Android and iOS applications, many users reported.
9To5Google reported that the “DM” button that normally appears next to the follow and notification buttons has disappeared without any replacement.
This is the situation with all Twitter accounts, and it’s probably just a minor bug.
Given the way the service currently runs, it’s difficult to tell if this was done intentionally by the platform.
In the meantime, users can continue to send direct messages by searching for the desired account in the Messages tab, the report said.
Last week, Twitter boss Elon Musk announced that higher-priced subscriptions to the ad-free microblogging platform will be available in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Musk also announced that future updates to the platform will make users less obligated to use the “For You” algorithmic timeline.
