'Drop me a "DM"'

I've seen recently in staff posts:
Quote from: Cruise85
...drop me a DM...

Quote from: Adam
...please drop me a DM...

I'm fine with PM ('Personal Message') but I'm stumped as to what 'DM' is an abbreviation of.
Please someone assist my poor, underpowered brain.
Call me 'w23'

These young whippersnappers. Next they will be wanting messages sent in the form of holograms that smell of wires and plastic.

Maybe they simply want a copy of a newspaper popular on this forum Wink
