You Can Now Share Tweets Within Twitter Direct Messages

The social network announced the new feature on its blog today, a little more than a week after promising it was coming at its analyst day. Twitter wants users to seamlessly bring their public conversations into the private sphere without leaving Twitter to do so.

The new tool is available as part of an app update for both iOS and Android.
