Twitter has confirmed through their Support channel that at least one update is coming down the pipe to alleviate some issues with direct messages.
Posted today on Twitter, the social networks official Support account confirmed that at least one update is coming in the future that will address some issues for Twitter on iOS. First, with a more widespread goal, Twitter is aiming to make it easier to delete any direct messages you may receive across all platforms, from mobile to desktop. However, Twitter did not address whether or not the update will fix an issue that some users are still complaining about, regarding receiving and/or sending URLs within a direct message, which Twitter still has a public notice posted regarding:
“We’re restructuring back-end elements of our direct message system. As a result, users may be unable to send some URLs in direct messages. We apologize for the inconvenience.“
As a bonus, Support followed the initial tweet up with another, pointing out Twitter for iPhone specifically, saying that they’d soon be opening up the floodgates to your entire DM history. So, for anyone who has been unable to find that message you received a long while ago, they will make it possible to find it once again.
Unfortunately, Twitter didn’t verify when the update would land, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Do you use the official Twitter for iPhone app, or do you prefer a third-party client?[via Twitter Support]
