Twitter Improves Privacy and Consistency of Direct Messages

twitter

Twitter announced recently that users will be able to delete direct messages (DMs) — private messages between users who follow each other — more consistently on both mobile and the Web. Users who’d deleted DMs on thier mobile devices were still seeing them on the Web.

 

The update will synchronize conversations between Web and mobile interfaces. Twitter support said in a tweet, “We’re also making an update to the Twitter iPhone and Android apps that will allow you to access your entire DM history.”

In addition to strengthening privacy, control and consistency, Twitter wants to make messaging a more prominent service and competitive with popular messaging apps like WhatsApp and others.

The company introduced pop-up notifications that alert you when someone is interacting with your tweets in April.
