Twitter has announced various adjustments to how users may send direct messages to several accounts at the same time. Twitter now allows you to send the same message to several accounts at the same time. Previously, if a user chose several accounts before sending a direct message, Twitter would create a group. Users will select whether to send the message to each account individually or as a group with the new update. Twitter's @TwitterSupport handle introduced the new functionality.

With the new functionality, the microblogging platform allows a message to be delivered to up to 20 distinct chats simultaneously. 
"When you DM a Tweet to a large number of people, there will be no more (awkward) group conversations. You may now share the same Tweet in up to 20 different DM convos at once," the company stated.

 


Aside from this new feature, Twitter is also improving and expanding Direct Messages. For example, on each conversation, users will now see an option to navigate to the most recently delivered message. Users will also notice the ability to respond to a message with a long press, and it is now simpler to discover a discussion based on the date.
