"Direct from :

reply to this email to send a direct message to

-- You must *already be following a user for them to send you a direct message
-- The medium should be consistent, I don't think it is necessary to *remind users that they can send DMs through the web interface or their cell phones. If I get it on my cell first, I'll respond that way, and so on. The message doesn't let you know that you can reply to send a DM back. This works for followers that are protected and public.
