How to Send a Direct Tweet in TweetDeck


TweetDeck lets you perform almost every action you can perform on the actual Twitter website, including sending direct tweet -- more commonly known as direct messages or "DM." Sending a direct message is ideal when you want to communicate on Twitter but you don't want it to appear in your public stream as a mention. Like tweets, Twitter also restricts direct messages to 140 characters or less, and this still applies when sending direct messages via TweetDeck.

  • Open TweetDeck on your computer and locate the person to whom you want to send a direct message. To add a column of people you follow, click the "+" icon in the TweetDeck toolbar, click the icon for Twitter and then click the "Core" link. Click "All Friends" to add your column.

  • Hold your mouse over the user's avatar until you see four square-shaped icons appear. Click the envelope icon, which is for direct messages.

  • Click the account you want to use to send your direct message in the "From" field if you have multiple Twitter accounts configured with TweetDeck.

  • Type your message into the field. TweetDeck displays how many characters you have remaining on the right while you type.

  • Click the "Send" button to send your direct message.
