Twitter is making it easier for users to share a tweet using its direct message function.
The message button will appear at the bottom of tweets, and with a couple of clicks people can start a private message about a tweet.
The social media site said that it has seen the number of private messages sent grow by more than 60% in 2015. The number of tweets sent privately increased 200% in the second half of 2015.
In a blog post, Somas Thyagaraja, a product manager at Twitter, said: "With all this interest, we’ve also heard from many of you that it could be easier to share a tweet using direct message.
"So now — in just a few taps — you can share unique Twitter content from your timeline right into your private conversation."
