Does RESPECT Not Apply to Direct Messages (DM)?

Direct Messages is a Twitter program that I have failed to recognize the value of. Most of the messages I receive don’t need to be private. Why not just send a Tweet? Maybe someone can send me a TWEET and explain it.

Personally, I prefer to use Email to carry on direct communications with my followers and those I follow on Twitter. If a follower sends me a tweet and request my Email Address I will give it to them unless I have a legitimate reason to withhold it. Then I will explain my reason to them.

 PROBLEMS I’VE ENCOUNTERED THAT TWITTER MIGHT CAN FIX:

You can only send a direct message to your followers even though you can receive messages from all users that you follow.

It takes 4 steps to delete one message.

There are no instructions for deleting all messages.

PROBLEMS I’VE ENCOUNTERED THAT ONLY USERS CAN FIX:

I have included about 40 examples of over 200 Direct Messages of blatant disrespect that accumulated in my DM box in less than three months.

DIRECT MESSAGES (I removed links to protect the sender)
