    It looks like Twitter has just changed its direct messaging policy. Verified Twitter account holders can now send Direct Messages to users they don?t follow. They opened the flood gates.

    Can anyone verify, or only celebrities?

    From what I've all read, it applies to anyone that's email verified.

    I wonder why they would do that? Nobody reads DM's now, there are too much and it was spammy before

    @giftguru, well we internet marketers/blackhatters don't, but the companies who are just following about 20 clients and those clients follow them back, then the company uses direct messages. Direct messages is for serious Twitter users, following only few, not thousands.
