Retrieves up to 200 of the most recently received direct messages by the authenticating (home) user. This function requires access token with read, write, and direct messages access.

  since_id = NULL,
  max_id = NULL,
  n = 200,
  parse = TRUE,
  token = NULL



optional Returns results with an ID greater than (that is, more recent than) the specified ID. There are limits to the number of Tweets which can be accessed through the API. If the limit of Tweets has occurred since the since_id, the since_id will be forced to the oldest ID available.


Character, returns results with an ID less than (that is, older than) or equal to `max_id`.


optional Specifies the number of direct messages to try and retrieve, up to a maximum of 200. The value of count is best thought of as a limit to the number of Tweets to return because suspended or deleted content is removed after the count has been applied.


Logical indicating whether to convert response object into nested list. Defaults to true.


Every user should have their own Oauth (Twitter API) token. By default token = NULL this function looks for the path to a saved Twitter token via environment variables (which is what `create_token()` sets up by default during initial token creation). For instruction on how to create a Twitter token see the tokens vignette, i.e., `vignettes("auth", "rtweet")` or see ?tokens.


Return object converted to nested list. If status code of response object is not 200, the response object is returned directly.


Includes detailed information about the sender and recipient user. You can request up to 200 direct messages per call, and only the most recent 200 direct messages will be available using this endpoint.

Important: This method requires an access token with read, write, and direct message permissions. If you own the Twitter application, you can change permissions through Twitter's developer portal. Once you have made changes to the application permission settings, you will need to regenerate your token before those effect of those changes can take effect.
