Users will now be able to easily switch between Home Feed and Direct Messages with the chat windows introduced on Twitter.
Twitter Users previously had to go back and forth between the Feed and Direct Messages, now they simply have to tap the ‘Messages’ bar on the bottom left corner to start a chat, similar, to the placement of messenger tab on Facebook & LinkedIn.
A tweet sent via DM will also show up in the feed while they chat, and one can simply close the window and get back to scrolling.
