This works on my end. Try using the official keys (remove account from Twidere, enter official keys as linked in your post, re-create account in Twidere). There has been a point where Twitter removed some DM support from the API for third-party apps... with one of these keys, Twidere looks like the official app on API level.

I followed the instructions, confirmed the new key/secret. But still this did not work. I get the same result.

Despite getting the flash message, the DM does go through.

I've just switched from Twidere(*) keys to Twitter for Android official app. ones (as linked in your post). And it works fine: DM, even with pic., sent&received, notif. with answers&fav.
Question: are your connected in the same time with the Twitter for Android official app. (from the Google Play store)?

(*) v. 3.7.3 from F-droid running on Android 6.0.1

The problem might be the same as mentioned here: klinker24/talon-for-twitter-android#96
Twitter has switched to a new DM API
