Twitter is live testing its new Messenger-like DM chat window for the desktop version, and it has been made available to certain users. This will provide a picture-in-picture Messenger-like display for messaging on the platform.
Twitter is seeing increased usage of DMs, as many people have reduced their public posting activity. Thus, the company plans to make it easier for people to keep on the conversation while browsing through their tweet feeds.
The new feature shows active DM chats in a small sub-window at the bottom right of the screen –similar to the presentation of Facebook Messenger chats and LinkedIn messaging option.
