Business News: The Elon Musk-owned social media site has brought in several features that were previously available for free, under the Twitter Blue subscription.
Twitter will soon implement daily limits on the number of direct messages (DM) unverified accounts can send on the platform, in the company’s latest move to boost signups for its subscription service Twitter Blue
The company, which announced this measure on July 22, however positioned it as a part of its efforts to “reduce spam in direct messages”.
Twitter is yet to disclose specific information about the daily limits it plans to implement, although it mentions that users can subscribe to Twitter Blue to send more messages. Unverified accounts are those who have not signed up for Twitter Blue.
The move comes on heels of Twitter rolling out a direct message setting, after which messages from verified users whom the user doesn’t follow will be moved to a secondary “message request inbox”.
Users who previously had opted in to receive direct messages from everyone were migrated to the new setting, which meant that people who don’t pay for Twitter Blue can no longer message people who don’t follow them.
