Starting this week, Twitter users will now have the option to receive direct messages from any of the other 288 million people who have signed up for the service.
Previously, only individuals that followed each other on the social network and microblogging platform were able to exchange private missives.
However, the option to receive direct messages from non-followers is currently turned off by default. To begin receiving messages from any and everyone, users will have to change their own settings manually.
