Ever wanted to show someone on Twitter a tweet without the rest of your followers seeing it? Well, if you have their email address you’ve always been able to, but now you can DM it to them on Twitter too.
The feature comes as part of the latest update to the social media network and is available on iOS, Android, Twitter for web and Tweetdeck.
If you want to share a tweet from either the iOS or Android mobile apps, long-press the Tweet in your timeline and choose “Share via Direct Message.” On twitter.com and TweetDeck, tap 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.
It’s not a massive update but it’s one that will aid in keeping at least some users within the Twitter ecosystem. It’s also not all that surprising, given that it was announced as part of a raft of upcoming changes announced last week.
