DM

Meaning 1 Direct message
Definition

DM is a social media acronym that means "direct message". It refers to a Twitter or Instagram message sent directly to a follower.

A DM may also be called a "private message" or simply "message." People often use the DM feature to communicate with others about a sensitive matter with information such as contact info or sexually suggestive messages. However, you should be careful what you DM since recipients could use it to blackmail you someday. Just ask James Franco.

Example
"U can send me a DM instead of posting a tweet if u want."
