Here's How to Share Tweets as Direct Messages

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

If you’ve just updated your Twitter app, you may notice something a little different about the social network. You can now share individual tweets with your mates as direct messages, along with your own incendiary insightful comments, like "This is you, hahaha", or "Told you he was a wanker".

All you have to do is long-press the tweet of your choosing on the Android or iOS app and select the ‘Share via Direct Message’ option when the menu bar pops up. If you prefer sharing your me-me-me-me-me updates through the Twitter website or TweetDeck, simply tap the ••• More icon and then ‘Share via Direct Message’.
