On Tuesday, Twitter added a new Message button to the bottom of Tweets in the iOS and Android Twitter apps.
This button, which is placed to the right of the Like button, allows you to quickly share a Tweet within a Direct Message.
This newly added button seems to be a logical feature addition for Twitter, as the company said that there has been a 200% increase in the number of Tweets sent in Direct Messages in the last half of 2015. With an increase of that magnitude, it makes sense that Twitter would try to make it easier for people to use Twitter’s Direct Message feature to send Tweets to others.
