X/Twitter still remains the number one social media that you can get in touch with influential people and get a reply.
This is not by chance. It’s because on 𝕏/Twitter, people share their thoughts and opinions (their intelligence). So when people get in touch with them it’s because of that. Not because they posted and sexy picture or a video dancing.
The other reason is how the X/Twitter DMs are set up. It’s hard to miss a new DM when a new person messages you.
In this post, we’re going to take a look on how you can send a DM on X/Twitter with all the new settings since Elon Musk too over

New DM Settings on X PremiumSince Elon took over, there have been a lot of changes on X/Twitter. And DMs have not been forgotten. Here are some new changes and some old settings too you need to know about DMs
Only verified users can send DMs to accounts that don’t follow themBefore it was possible to send DMs to anyone who turned on their DMs but now it’s impossible to send a DM to an account that has DMs on unless they follow you. So now if you want to send a DM to an account that does not follow you, you need to have X Premium.
By default all verified users only accept DMs from other verified usersRight now the default setting for all verified users (X Premium users) is to only accept message requests from other verified users. There is an option to set it open to everyone but nobody likes spam. So most people will leave the setting to only allow other verified users.
Accounts that has subscriptions turned on have the ability to only accepts DMs from their subscribers
If an account has subscriptions enable, they have the option to only accept message requests from their subscribers.
Low quality messages are filtered automatically
There is an option that is enable by default to hide low quality message and spam to a different inbox so that it never reaches the user’s main inbox.
Most people would not bother turning this off because nobody likes spam.
How to Send DMs on 𝕏/Twitter DesktopSending DMs on the 𝕏/Twitter web app is very straight forward. There are two ways you can do this. 1. Just click the message icon when you visit any account’s profile.

2. Open the messages area via the sidebar or the mini-message tab and click the message with a plus icon and input the handle of the account you want to message.
