Looks like Twitter is borrowing one of the most common features present in Facebook and LinkedIn desktop websites – Message pop up window. Yes, the microblogging website will now be showing a pop-up window on the right side of the screen that will have all your direct messages. Until now, users would have to open the window separately, type the reply and head back to the timeline. Now, with pop-up window on the side, same can be done without leaving the current page. Twitter confirmed this move in a post and HT Tech was also able to use the feature.

In case someone sends you a message, the pop-up window bar shows an orange dot notification, opening it will show the active sender's message on top, to which you can reply easily. You have the same options to send media, GIF or an emoji alongside text.
