I seldom use the Direct Message feature of Twitter. Maybe because a lot of instant messaging features are missing on the DM function. Well, Twitter recently announced that it will be adding Group Direct Message soon. This means that instead of just DM-ing to one person, you can DM to multiple people at the same time. It’s like creating a private group chat.
OK, this feature is already available in almost all instant message apps like Facebook Chat, WhatsApp etc etc. Twitter is kinda late in the game. Let’s see if this new feature will encourage more users to use the DM function.
The group DM feature will be rolling out to all users over the next few days.
