Using Twitter has been a wild ride with constant updates and changes over the past few months. With the latest updates to Twitter for Android and iOS, the option to send a direct message from an account’s profile has disappeared.
The latest Twitter updates for Android and iOS rolled out late last week and appear to have removed the option to send a direct message to another account directly from a profile page for all users. The “DM” button normally appears next to the “Follow” and “Notify” buttons, but has simply disappeared without being replaced.
This seems to be the case for all Twitter accounts and seems to be the case most likely be an easy mistake.
Twitter’s web app still shows the Direct Message button as usual, but it’s gone for virtually all Android users, and many iOS users as well. Several members of 9to5Mac Team say it still shows up on their iPhone while others don’t see it. Our Damien Wilde sees the button is missing on his Android phones, but he sees it on an iPhone signed in with the same account. There are also many public reports the button disappears.
Given the ever-changing state of Twitter, it’s hard to tell whether or not this is a deliberate move by Twitter, but it’s certainly something we hope gets fixed. In the meantime, you can still start a Direct Message by locating the account you want to send a message to in the Messages tab.
In the past few weeks, Twitter has also updated its Android app with a few other notable changes. For one, Twitter Blue is now available through the app for $11/month, which gives your account a blue check, search and conversation priority, and not much more. The app also recently picked up the For You tab, which displays tweets in an algorithmic view rather than chronologically. These changes were already present on iOS.
