Another Instance of the Documentation Being Out of Date

I can’t overstate what a feels bad moment and waste of time it is when documentation is out of date.

I spent too much time trying to figure out why enable_dm_commands wasn’t working.
I don’t go into documentation on twitter (yet) assuming that what’s there is probably out of date. I always assume it’s something I did wrong which leads to lots of wasted time.

I told my boss “this doesn’t seem to be working” and I moved on eventually. Then he finds this:

It’s been almost a year since this was announced. And the documentation doesn’t seem to reflect those changes.

If Twitter isn’t going to update the docs in a timely manner can they be community edited?
