Twitter adds new feature, adds ‘share tweets’ via Direct Messages (DM)

Good news folks who use Twitter. Twitter has added the ability for users to share tweets via Direct Messages. Users on Android and iPhone can send public tweets privately similar to photos or links using Direct Message.


Sachin Agarwal, Product Manager, Twitter said on a company blog

“Twitter is already a great place for public conversation; now it’s also easier to privately discuss things you care about.”.

A new “Share via Direct Message” will pop up upon long press on the tweet a person wants to share. This feature landed just a few days ago. This feature was announced in order to improve the way people use Direct Messages. Moreover, apart from iPhone and Android, this new feature could be used across the web,i.e Chrome, Firefox, Safari and also with Tweetdeck.


To share a tweet from or Tweetdeck app press the “••• More” icon and select “Share via Direct Message”. The person you share a Tweet with will get a push notification, and the Tweet will display directly in the conversation.
