Twitter has been around for almost 6 years now, but still there are many people who don’t use or know about the microblogging service. In this 6 years, it also wasn’t possible to e-mail a tweet to someone.
The company announced in a blog post that ‘sharing just got easier’, because now you’re able to email a Tweet directly from the main website. The new feature could enlarge Twitter’s user base by simply grabbing the attention of non-tweeters.
You won’t need to copy and paste the text into an e-mail yourself anymore. Just click on ‘more’ next to the reply, retweet and favourite button and choose ‘e-mail tweet‘. Then you can add the address you want to send the tweet to, along with an optional message in a pop-up.
Twitter clients like Hootsuite and Tweetdeck already had this feature for a long time, but it’s a nice addition if you’re not using special software to view and send tweets. The new feature will be rolled out over the coming weeks for all users.
