Direct Message or ‘DM’ in the digital world stands for private communication between social media users through a social platform. This communication can be in the form of a textual, audio, video, or graphical format, which is visible only to the sender and the recipient.
For direct messages, social platforms have a specific inbox created where DM from your followers falls directly in access. At the same time, social platforms filter out messages from non-followers in a separate inbox.
