Send a Direct Message from the Twitter Website


Send a Direct Message from the Twitter Website

On a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use the Twitter site to send and receive DMs.

Start by opening a web browser on your computer and accessing the Twitter site. If you’re not logged in to your account, do so.

On the Twitter site, from the sidebar on the left, select “Messages.”

Click "Messages" on the Twitter site.

At the top of the “Messages” page, right next to the “Messages” header, click the “New Message” (envelope icon) option.

Click "New Message" on the Twitter site.

A “New Message” window will open. Here, click the “Search People” field at the top, and type the name or the Twitter username of the person who you want to DM. Select that person in the list, and then, from the top-right corner of the “New Message” window, select “Next.”

Tip: To send someone a DM from their Twitter profile page, click the envelope icon next to their Twitter name.

If you want to DM multiple people at once, keep finding and selecting people on the “New Message” window. You can add up to 50 people in a single DM on Twitter.

Select a user to DM on the Twitter site.

On the right of the Twitter site, a chat section will open. At the bottom of this section, click “Start a New Message” and type the message that you want to send to the selected user. Then, click the paper airplane icon next to the message box to send your message.

Tip: To add a new line in your message, press the Shift+Enter keys at the same time. Pressing only the Enter key will send your message.

Type and send a DM from the Twitter site.

To attach a photo or video to your message, click the “Media” icon beside the message field. Similarly, click the “GIF” icon to add a GIF to your message, and click the emoji icon to add emoji to your message.

Attach items to a DM on the Twitter site.

And your Direct Message will be sent to your selected Twitter user!
