DMFail Fails, Twitter To Fix Private Messages Snafu

Say goodbye to the fun of reading private Twitter messages sent improperly and gathered on DMFail. Sometime today, Twitter says in an email, they’ll change the way private messages are sent so that you can use either [D + username + message] OR [DM + username + message].

It’s a subtle feature change, but one that will avoid embarrassment for people who’ve accidentally made their private messages public.
