Popular microblogging site, Twitter, is rolling out a new feature called pinned DMs that will allow users to pin their favorite chats on top of the DM inbox. Well, to be completely fair, this is not a completely new feature since it was previously available to Twitter Blue paying customers. Now, Twitter is making it available to everyone for free. It will be rolled out for every user on Android, iOS, and web.
Twitter support also tweeted regarding the update and wrote, “Keep your fave DM convos easily accessible by pinning them”. Check the tweet here.
The feature is rolled out for almost everyone now. An iOS user claimed the other day that the feature is available on their iOS device but not on Twitter web app. In order to pin chat on an iOS app, users need to swipe to the side of a conversation to reveal a pin option. After tapping on it, the conversation will be moved to a new “Pinned conversations” section at the top of their DM inbox.
