Twitter is trying out an option to filter out the unwanted DM requests sitting in your message box.

The platform announced an option to delete unsolicited message requests you'd get, to keep them out of sight and out of mind.

How to filter DM requests?

  • Tap the message icon on the bottom right corner.
  • Click on 'Message Requests'.
  • Click on 'Show Additional Messages'.
  • Tap the red delete icon on the message you want to filter out.

Filtering out the unwanted messsage will also delete it's conversation history.

The feature is quite basic and Instagram has had the feature for quite a while now. It would help you keep your message box less cluttered and keep the messages or requests that you want to see.

The platform has been testing tweaks and features lately to improve DMs. Recently, the platform also added a search bar in DMs, making it easier for you to search through your messages and find the one you're looking for.

In a recent press event at Twitter HQ in San Francisco, the Product Team announced and discussed several upcoming features and tweaks.
