In this post we will cover how to turn off DMs (Direct Messages) on Twitter.
Twitter doesn’t provide a way to stop DMs from everybody. However, it does have a feature to stop DMs from people you do not follow.
- Login to your Twitter account or open the app.
- Desktop browser users select More ⋯. Twitter app users select your profile picture located at the upper-right portion of the screen.
- Select Settings and privacy > Privacy and safety > Direct Messages.
- Uncheck the Allow message requests from everyone box.
You’ll still be able to get DMs from people who follow you.
That’s how you stop direct messages on Twitter. Have questions? Drop one below in the comments section.
