Twitter is one of the most adored apps in the world with over 400 million active users. The micro-blogging app has been ideally designed to keep you at pace with what’s happening around the world.

Though there are several features such as, Night Mode which I like a lot in Twitter, “Direct Message” appeals me the most. From letting you send cool GIFs, funny emojis to photos or videos, DM is fabulous in letting you communicate with your friends or followers.

The news app has been updated to add Read Receipts which lets you know when the receiver has seen your message. If you have used the Stock Messages app for iOS and WhatsApp, you must be aware of its functionality.
