Twitter DM Spam has made the DM column virtually useless in Tweetdeck and Hootsuite, many people are already starting to setup auto DM’s to tell their followers that they are no longer checking their DM box and you need to contact them via Reply. What twitter needs however is to put DM control back in the hands of its users by allowing for DM filter lists, Twitter is already using lists, let users have the ability to create a DM List and only people who are added to this DM list are authorized to DM the user on twitter, this way you won’t accept any DM’s from people you don’t recognize or know.
A Twitter DM list is long overdue, the ability to only allow your closest friends and have private conversations with a select group of people is a much needed feature on Twitter and this feature shouldn’t have been terribly difficult for Twitter to implement. You should be able to restrict who can DM you and reject DM’s from people you don’t know.
