    Hello,

    I know that twitter disabled the function to send DM to non follower....

    but today I found out that I can send directmessages to verified HBO and Game of Thrones account!
    they dont follow me and it works.

    So how is it possible? I sent a few fanarts long time ago and tagged them with #hbo and #gameofthrones.
    I tried it with other names but it does only work with HBO and Game of Thrones.

    I also treid to change the user ID in HTML code but it does not work. So how is it possible that I am able to send DMs to HBO and Game of Thrones official account? Any ideas?
    This show me that there is always a way to send DMs to non follower!

    I'm pretty positive that twitter enabled DM to non followers a while back

    It's possible, because they are verified accounts.
