More Prominent Placement Of Direct Messaging On Twitter Webpage

Twitter is trying to bull its way into the hot chat space and one obvious step is making direct messaging more of a front and center activity.

Otherwise, the functionality hasn’t changed much.

I am betting that private group chat will be coming very soon, and it won’t be based on hashtags, but on ‘soft invitation’ via mentions by the initiator of the chat.
