Twitter DM Disappeared, How to Fix Missing Messages in Twitter?
Before the recent update, you might have noticed a small message icon near a person’s profile. This message would directly and quickly open the person’s DM. The feature was pretty handy to use when messaging someone. In the recent update, the “message button icon” was removed from the profile, so people cannot DM someone while opening their profile. But do not worry; we will fix that for you.
It should be noted that the message icon feature is still present in Twitter’s core and has not been completely removed. As a result, it is easily reversed. The methods described below may not be permanent, as Twitter may issue a final update that renders the methods ineffective. However, here’s how to recover a missing DM.
