Welcome Messages provide the ability to set a default message for new conversations or custom Welcome Messages for different referral paths, e.g. for users who click on Direct Message links present in a given Tweet.
Setting a default Welcome Message¶
- Create a new Welcome Message with POST direct_messages/welcome_messages/new. Take note of the returned Welcome Message ID.
- Create a new Welcome Message Rule using the Welcome Message ID with POST direct_messages/welcome_messages/rules/new.
Currently, you may only create one Rule. If a Rule has already been created, you must delete it first.
