There have been an increasing amount of complaints regarding missing dm’s, lost messages, direct messages on Twitter recently and there are likely to be a few more in the next few days.
Twitter has deleted some users DM’s – Direct Messages.
Its okay, its just a twitter bug, they do know about it ….
Twitter Support says
- Some users are currently experiencing an issue with direct messages disappearing, without the sender or receiver deleting them from their inbox.
- Some users may experience a delay in DM delivery. A notification may arrive to your email inbox, but the DM won’t appear for some time after the email delivery.
These are bugs, and our engineers are hard at work to solve these issues. Follow @support for updates!
Also while we are talking about Twitter, there is another Phishing Scam going around that says Twitter is going to charge do not click this. Its similar to twitter scams where one t says, Is this picture about you, and Is this blog about you – these are still spreading like viruses after more than 6 months because people keep clicking them.
So if you do ever get your DM’s back – do not click suspicious links, it may look like its come from your friend but ask them first if they have sent you a link, as they won’t even know if its a Phishing scam.
Hope this helps
