New Message Request… Who’s This?

Twitter Adds Contextual Detail On Direct Messages From Users You Don’t Follow

Twitter is giving users more insight into who’s DMing them to help identify if or how they are connected.

As explained by Twitter:

Now when you receive a DM request, we’re giving you more context upfront about who sent it, like how you’re connected to the person on Twitter. And once you tap into the request, you’ll see their profile info along with their message.”



The new option was rolled out to all users as of last week. It is definitely quite helpful and a good way to help certain users save a lot of time.
