How to Pin a Direct Message on Twitter
The pinnable DM feature doesn’t seem to be fully available yet.
We tested it on the iOS app, but not on the Twitter web app. On the iOS app, follow these steps to pin a direct message:
- Open the latest version of the Twitter app on your mobile device.
- Tap the envelope icon. You will be directed to your messages.
- Swipe to the side of a conversation in your inbox to reveal a pin.
- Tap the pin.
- The conversation will go to a “Pinned Conversations” section above your inbox.
Why are pinned DMs important?
The ability to pin direct messages is just a handy way to quickly access certain conversations in your Twitter inbox.
How many DMs can you pin?
You can only keep six direct messages at the top of your list.
When will pinnable DMs be available?
Pinnable direct messages are rolling out (as of February 17, 2022).
