Twitter Delete Direct Message,

Twitter is not the first social service that will have this optional  features in fact Gmail also had a lot of this optional features that let you create impediments to hasty e-mailing, in fact the best feature about the mid-1990s AOL Mail Service was the unsend, that is if you sent an e-mail to another AOL user, up till the moment that users actually opened it, you had the option of taking it  all back, like you never send any message,  but in the end it wont retrieve your message from the recipient's inbox.

Why Twitter Unsend feature is Different?

  1. When you delete a DM on Twitter, Twitter removes it not  only from your outbox but as well as from the recipient's inbox!
  2. Twitter unsend is  actually an improvement over old AOL's cause even if the recipient has read it, even if the DM has been responded to, you can still delete it!
  3. You can delete a DM not just the one you sent but also the one you received

However, some smart user might get Twitter DM other ways like if they has certain application that manage their incoming messages, e-mails, text or has a special notification turned on, such users dont actually read any of  the dozens of e-mails Twitter send a day, even if they do, there is no guarantees in life, but i offer you a hope.
