    If I send a direct message to someone who is not following me will they get my message? In the public time line over at Twitter someone said that they were looking for a job and I wanted to help them.

    Actually, it was a reply. Not a direct message.

    Yes -- it *should* get to them. The sytem is desinged to send it to them -- but with all the current Twitter issues it is suspect.

    For instance Twitter reverted a large % of their user base back to old pictures last week.

    They can get your replies but not working for DM, you'd get a message if you DM people who are not following you.

    If your account is banned you DM will *not* be accessible -- and therefore your link will *not* be valid.

    Not sure what happens if they reinstate your account, i.e. if older queued messages go through or not.
