How to add a private message button to your tweet.

Originally published 06/15/2020

Lately, I’ve had a lot of people asking how to add a private message button to their tweet like in my pinned post. Well, guess what? It’s incredibly easy.

(I know, I know, this isn’t really dev-related but let’s pretend it is)

Step 1.

Head to Tweeterid.com and find out your ID number.

Step 2.

Copy/Paste this link into your tweet:

https://twitter.com/messages/compose?recipient_id=YOUR_ID_NUMBER

Don’t forget to replace ‘YOUR_ID_NUMBER’ with, well, your ID number.

Step 3.

Send tweet. See? I told you it was easy.

And there you have it, folks. I take full responsibility for these buttons popping up everywhere now.
