In this article, we will explain how to disable DMs (direct messages) on Twitter.
Twitter doesn’t provide a way to stop everyone’s DMs. However, it has a feature to stop DMs from people you don’t follow.
- Log in to your Twitter account or open the app.
- Desktop browser users select After ⋯. Users of the Twitter application select your profile picture located in the upper right part of the screen.
- Select Settings & Privacy > Privacy & Security > Direct Messages.
- Uncheck the Allow message requests from everyone box.
You will still be able to receive DMs from people who follow you.
This is how you stop direct messages on Twitter. Have questions? Drop one below in the comments section.
