Twitter has been buzzing about their new releases for a few months and they are finally starting to roll them out.
Converse with a group, privately
Private conversations on Twitter are a great complement to the largely public experience on the platform. You might prefer to read (or watch) Tweets but converse about them privately. You might want to continue a public conversation privately with a smaller group, or start one based on a Tweet you saw. Many of you use Direct Messages to reach the people and brands you’re only connected to on Twitter. Whatever the case may be, the ability to converse privately with groups gives you more options for how and with whom you communicate on Twitter.
New! Use Direct Messages to speak privately with a group of up to 20 people. Share Tweets, show emoji & be yourself. https://t.co/8giGhC6OO0
The home timeline is a great place to have conversations but it’s also a place to find great conversation starters.
The group function lets you start conversations with any of your followers and they don’t all need to follow one another in order to chat. You can create a group of up to 20 people in just a few taps. When you’re added to a group, you’ll get a notification. If you’re brand new to Direct Messages, here’s a good resource to learn more.
