Dossy: Don't be so quick to condemn. I have an app that uses DMs and ALL DM traffic is generated by users and they know it--so there is no spamming. There are legitimate uses of DMs that users are OK with that push an app beyond 250/day.
Think of it this way, if an application has 300 followers and they all interact via private message (DM) one time per day, then 50 users will be unable to communicate on any given day.
