Media in Direct Messages


I’ve looked through the documentation, the forum and tried some calls myself, but it seems not to be possible to publish media via the direct_message endpoint. Is this correct?

The direct messages that are retrieved from the API do contain media, but so far I haven’t been able to publish media in a direct message through the api. I tried providing the media in the post and also tried adding images with the media_ids (after uploading them with the upload endpoint), but both without success. The message is shown, but the associated media is missing.

Am I missing something or is it not possible to do this at the moment.


It’s not possible to do this via the API… yet.
