Someone in NCT seems to have briefly enabled DMing on their Twitter account and the Internets response was hysterical.
Idol and idol group social media accounts, for obvious reasons, tend to have the direct messaging feature disabled, so when NCTs official Twitter account enabled direct messaging functionality, fans couldnt believe their eyes!

As of right now, it is unclear whether it was enabled on purpose, or if it was an accident. Some fans believed it may have been Taeyong who enabled it, as he was the last member to have posted something on the account.
Taeyong was the last person who uploaded a photo in NCTs Twitter account. Does that mean Grandpa Yongie accidentaly opened the DM button? pic.twitter.com/RI6otWG55R

It may have been unclear how or why NCTs direct message inbox had been temporarily opened to the public, but that didnt stop fans from filling NCTs inbox with DMs.

While some fans sent meaningful messages of support, others sent jokes and funny photos of the members to troll them.
In the end, NCT fans all over the world will remember the day that NCT opened up their DMs to the public.
