Twitter Applications – InboxCleaner
All major social media networks enables you to send private messages to people you are connected with. The facility on Twitter is called Direct Messages or the DM for short.
Direct messages are of use for personal communication and the sharing of less public links such as e-mail addresses. I use DM to interact with my web design clients more conveniently as my Twitter account is online for many hours a day unlike email.
But spammers use DM as a convenient tool to spam. Moreover, you keep getting irrelevant or courtesy messages and requests if you have a large following. I find DM on Twitter as annoying as Aps and Games requests on Facebook.
Even reputed contacts spam you at times. I received a sponsored ad as DM from Apple News (Twitter account of Apple Support site) on January 22, 2014. See the screenshot below:
Besides, the direct messages keep accumulating as you are to delete them one by one unlike email where bulk action is allowed.
Twitter allows you to “Delete this direct message / Report this message.” Reporting is not a good practice, and I use it rarely when someone spams repeatedly.
I have cleaned my direct messages with a tool called InboxCleaner. You may give it a try:
