[Wikimedia-l] Getting Wikipedia whitelisted for Twitter DMs

2014-08-03 Thread Andy Mabbett
For some months, Twitter have been blocking most URLs in their direct messages (DMs), supposedly as an anti-spam measure. Do we have someone who has a contact there, who could ask them to whitelist Wikimedia project URLs in DMs? -- Andy Mabbett @pigsonthewing http://pigsonthewing.org.uk

Everything I had seen suggests that no URLs go through, but a little Googling suggests that there is a whitelist: http://thenextweb.com/twitter/2013/11/04/handy-hacks-sending-links-via-twitters-direct-message/ That said, every other source I can find mentioning a whitelist points back at that

Only twitter and Facebook links go thru DMs. I think if several people file a support ticket for this we may achieve something. Else get Jimbo to send a mail to the Twitter folks. Problem would be solved in no time. :) On Aug 3, 2014 10:52 PM, Luis Villa lvi...@wikimedia.org wrote: Everything I
