Twitter introduced a new button that allows for visitors of your website to message you directly. Until now, your website’s visitors had to first find your profile on the platform, and then click to message you. Twitter announced the new button in a tweet:

This new feature is 100% aimed at encouraging more people to use Twitter to communicate wth the businesses and brands they like. It makes it easier to start a private conversation with businesses rather than having to @mention them publicly. Of course, for it to work, you will have to accept to receive DMs from anyone, whether a user follows you or not. This can be activated in your account settings.
