Twitter has officially released its new direct message chat window on the desktop, which now allows users to engage in messaging without leaving the main tweet feed.
Slide into those DMs without clicking away from your timeline.

As seen above messaging tab provides picture in picture display for you DM’s which is same as desktop messaging function on both Facebook and LinkedIn. The window gets expanded when you get a message and you can minimize it anytime or engage in the discussions through the smaller screen.

Recommendation: Twitter Is Testing New Collaborative Option For Fleets
Twitter similarly to other platforms has received increased use of direct messaging as people’s public posting activity reduces and, the company rolled out many DM updates and additions to features over the time to get on the same page with this shift. Some twitter users might not be fond of this, to have their everyday tweet experience gets interrupted by a window popping up every time they get a message. And, you can not switch it off, you can only minimize it. Anyway, this will significantly make it easier for users to engage through DM.
