Another new feature has just arrived on Twitter. After URLs through direct messages (DMs) were made possible again and search was upgraded, Twitter has now rolled out a feature that gives you the ability to send tweets through DMs. Product Manager, Sachin Agarwal announced this update on Twitter’s official blog, and said that the update is available from today across platforms globally.
“With today’s update you’ll be able to share a Tweet privately with any of your followers. To do this from your mobile app, long-press the Tweet in your timeline and choose ‘Share via Direct Message,’ he explained.
On the desktop, you can tap on the ‘More’ icon and select the new ‘Share via Direct Message’ option. The tweet will directly show up in your DM conversation just like links and text messages. This feature is also available for TweetDeck. The feature is currently rolled out for the Twitter app on Android and iOS platforms, and Chrome and Windows for the web. Mac users however will have to wait for some time to be able to use this feature.
In the past week, Twitter has rolled out quite a few updates as promised by the social media giant. The company once again, activated the ability to send URLs through DMs, after they were abandoned for a short while for fighting spam. They even completed indexing all the data gathered since inception giving you a more refined search and the ability to search every tweet ever posted on the micro blogging site.
