Twitter adds DM share button to iOS and Android

A quicker way to share other people's embarrassing tweets with friends.

If you're a fan of secretly sharing tweets with your friends via DM, today's your lucky day. The Twitter apps for iOS and Android are being updated with a dedicated Message button for quicker sharing.

While sharing DM's has been around for a while (and frankly not that difficult), the new button is an explicit call to action to get folks to send messages.

In fact, the company has been enhancing its direct messages for a while hoping to get users to stay within the Twitter universe for more than just checking news and retweeting cat GIFs.
