Twitter has confirmed that improvements to Direct Messaging (DM) are coming within the next few weeks via the official Twitter Support account. The changes are meant to stop users from accidentally creating group chats once they tweet multiple people. In addition, Twitter enables a system that will allow users to share an equivalent tweet at an equivalent time in up to twenty different DM conversations.
The feature creates a separate DM conversation for every user a tweet is shared with. The new future will land first for iOS and web users, and Twitter says it’s coming “soon” to Android users. Another of the new features may be a quick scroll button allowing users to leap to the newest message during a thread with the press of one button. But, again, Twitter says it’ll roll-bent both Android and iOS users.
A new tool to form it more accessible for Twitter users to react to a message is rolling out for iOS users. When users react to the message, there’s a double-tap, and a long replacement press has been added. When users cash in of the long press, a message allowing them to “Add reaction” from the menu will appear, allowing users to settle on the acceptable reaction they need to use.
Another change Twitter’s implementing for iOS users has got to do with improving conversation scanning. Conversation scanning is becoming more accessible because of grouping messages by date, leading to less clutter. Unfortunately, Twitter hasn’t offered a particular date when any of those features will go live.
Some DM improvements are coming your way over the next few weeks.
We’ve got easier Tweet sharing, better navigation when in a convo, and more… (1/5)

It’s also unclear when or if the features noted as rolling out specifically for iOS users will ever come to Android or web users within the future. In other Twitter news, recently, verifications were stopped after fake accounts were ready to get verified.
