Twitter will soon be able to Filter Out Low Quality Messages from the DMs!

In the 2 last decades, several Social Networking platforms have been introduced but only the best ones have managed to thrive. Luckily, Twitter is one of the big ones. Twitter offers people a platform to voice their opinions in front of the whole world, a perk which has been exploited by countless users. However, as the competition is at an all-time high, Twitter has to keep on evolving to keep itself relevant.

Over the last few years, Twitter has rolled out interesting updates for both its web as well as mobile versions. Well, today isn’t any different either. According to App researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Twitter’s Web Application is working on a Filter setting for DMs.

Users with incredibly high followings receive tons of message requests. These can include professional messages as well as unnecessary ones. Thus, in order to ensure that the important messages get acknowledged, some kind of filtering mechanism is required and Twitter has got just the perfect idea for resolving this problem.

Wong mentioned in one of her recent tweets about Twitter working on a “Low Quality DM Filter” for its Web Application. She also added a screenshot showing where the new option might land.

If everything goes according to the details that have been made public till now, users will be able to access the option in the Privacy and Safety tab in the Settings menu. It will appear under the “Direct Messages” section and users will have the option to either disable or enable it.


As of now, the factors depending on which Twitter will filter out low quality messages, are unknown. Whether the word count and external links will play a role here or not hasn’t been revealed either. The feature should be available in the coming months on the web version of Twitter and if everything turns out to be good, maybe we can have it on our mobiles as well. Only time will determine these things.
