Twitter has been creating waves in recent times with cool new features being added on a regular basis. Just a few days back, the social media giant has added a new feature to its repertoire that lets users share tweets in Direct Messages.

Every day, millions of people send Direct Messages to communicate privately with friends, family, experts, brands, and anyone else they find interesting on Twitter. In fact, we’ve seen the number of messages sent grow over 60% in 2015. And the number of Tweets shared privately has grown even faster, at 200% in just the second half of last year.


With all this interest heard from tweeps all over the world, it could be easier to share a Tweet using Direct Message. So now — in just a few taps — you can share unique Twitter content from your timeline right into your private conversation.

This update is the next step towards making conversations richer in Direct Messages. Over time, twitter has added more ways to express yourself using GIFsemojis, or realllllllyyyyy long private messages, to help you connect with a group of people, and made it easy to get customer service.

The new Message button is now  available on Twitter for iOS and Android. Update your app, and share a Tweet to get the conversation started!
