Direct messages are private communications that can only be sent to friends and individuals you follow.
Direct messaging is a kind of communication between two individuals that is kept secret. The word “direct” means that it is not visible to anybody else; hence, it is private.
Also, keep in mind that you must be following a user in order to direct message them and messaging must be enabled in your Privacy settings.
You can easily change direct message settings by going to “Me” and then … (three dots) on the top right corner of your screen. Now you have to select “Privacy” and then “Who can send me direct messages“. Now you have to choose between “Everyone“, “Friends“, or “No one“.
