Our Opinion

DM is the easiest way to communicate with the person immediately. The direct messages on Twitter are kept private. You can send Direct message to welcoming the new followers. The user or recipient receives your message only if they are following you at present. If you send a direct message to the person who are not following you, the direct message will be filtered to the request box. Most of the business profile accounts on Twitter should change their settings to receive the direct message from any user. Through these, any customer will interact with the business people directly without any hassle.
