Twitter has announced that in an effort to combat spam, the platform will soon implement daily limits on the number of direct messages (DMs) that unverified accounts can send.

The company made the announcement, stating that to send unlimited DMs, users will need to subscribe to Twitter Blue, a premium subscription service. While the specific daily DM limit for unverified accounts has not been indicated, the changes are set to be implemented beginning Friday.

In response to inquiries about the new policy, Twitter's press email provided an automated response, promising to get back to users soon.

Twitter has also been taking steps to reduce spam on the platform. Last week, the company introduced a DM setting that moves DMs from verified users users don’t follow into a secondary "message request" inbox instead of the main inbox.

Although this setting aims to reduce spam, it also incentivizes users to subscribe to Twitter Blue, as it turns off the ability for non-subscribers to message them directly. Users can switch back to allowing message requests from everyone, but this option requires navigating through the settings.

Additionally, a few weeks ago, Elon Musk implemented "temporary" rate limits on reading tweets, with Twitter Blue subscribers enjoying more extensive tweet reading capabilities compared to unverified users. The current status of these rate limits remains uncertain.
