It looks like Twitter is gearing up for some new changes to its Direct Messages (DMs) feature.
Reports suggest that the platform will be limiting the number of DMs non-verified users can send per day, along with a few other restrictions.
The aim seems to be encouraging people to sign up for Twitter Blue, the subscription service, in order to have unlimited messaging privileges. A leaked screenshot shows a warning prompting users to get verified or sign up for Twitter Blue if they've hit the maximum limit for DMs in a single day.
In addition to this limit, there are a couple of other potential changes in the pipeline. Verified users with Twitter Blue subscriptions might be the only ones allowed to create group chats, and only paying users may be able to send DM requests to accounts that don't follow them.
The exact details and implementation dates for these changes are yet to be revealed.
