Twitter has been mostly about tweets. Users have loved this social networking platform because it makes everyone convey their messages with the least use of characters (something which needs time and lots of thought to put in). Twitter has never been much about chatting with your friends, it has always been about sharing your opinion, replying to statements being made by various celebs or politicians over the platform and to be honest it has been the best platform to discover newest piece of information about a certain subject.
Direct Message is a very old feature introduced by Twitter but it has always involved one to one communication. In other words, you could chat with anyone on twitter as a personal chat. However recently a new feature has been introduced in the twitter application which can help you to have a group Direct Message.
