Let me explain why I said that. There are only two ways you can implement a "DM the developer" feature.
a) Execute a follow API call to make the developer follow the DMer, and then send the DM from the DMer's Twitter account. Presumably you will then also execute a follow API call from DMer to developer, so that the developer can reply to the DM. Bad idea, because the developer loses control over his friends list. b) Act as a DM proxy. The developer gets a DM from @oneforty saying, "@user said: bla bla bla..." Developer replies to @oneforty and @oneforty DMs the DMer with ""@developer said: yada yada..." Slightly better than a), but it still makes a mockery of Twitter's rule that only your friends can DM you.
