Via a blog post, the company wrote, "With today's update you'll be able to share a Tweet privately with any of your followers. To do this 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."

"Twitter is already a great place for public conversation; now it's also easier to privately discuss things you care about." posted Sachin Agarwal, Product Manager, Twitter on a company blog.

Earlier this month, Twitter gave the community a preview of upcoming features during its Analyst's Day event where it discussed changes to the platform and revenue streams. One of those touted features - the ability to privately share (aka "direct message") a tweet - has now gone live. Says Twitter, "with today's update you'll be able to share a Tweet privately with any of your followers."
