We just saw the
can_dm field in the frienship/show API and were surprised not to find any documentation about it, not a single reference in the direct_messages/new neither.
We tried to use it to find if we can send DM to someone who enabled the DM from anyone option and it seems to work!
The only reference we could find is this post which says we need to be white-listed to use it. Does it mean we are ? Or is the field available to anyone now ? Because in the friendship/show documentation nothing says this field is restricted, and it is available in the API Console too.
It would be good to have a source of truth here, that we can rely on. Are we supposed to be allowed to do this ? Does it really requires white-listing ? If we can see the fields does it mean we can use it, it won’t disappear ?
