tweets, as a social media platform, used to let people to post things on Internet. it is like a “online diary” that allows people to record the things that happened and expresses your sadness and happiness. One thing different is that you can see what people do if you follow him or her but cannot send direct message in case of disturbing others’ life. However, recently some Twitter users found that their accounts can receive direct messages from anyone, even if people they don’t follow.
in my opinion, i think this option may not that usefull for all the tweeters. someone may get benefit if they post on twitter that they want to buy or sell something. however, personally, i just do not think people like to receive direct message from strangers and that would definitely disturb people’s life since it makes this function not private any more. so what do you guys think of it, or do you like to receive a lot of direct messages from people that you do not know.
