With 2.0.3 we will introduce a special site which displays only your direct messages like it already is in and recommended in this NotABug Issue: but there's a important for you all about that: Should direct messages be filteres out of the home timeline and only displayed in the direct messages TL and notifications now or should the DM TL just be additional?Please answer here or in issue.Need your opinion
