Nice, George! Been waiting for this since you made Direct Messenger for iPhone: "Any plans for a Web version? I use a ton now, and really would love similar for Twitter. Their DM experience on Web is even worse than mobile." I do wonder how/much I'll use this. I've noticed I often like going to for FB because 1) FB takes too long to load, and 2) I'm often initiating a conversation, for which a full-blown messaging experience is better. However Twitter 1) doesn't take too long to load, so I don't mind using for DMs, and 2) I often am using DMs via using the "Share Tweet via DM" feature. That said, maybe this will now allow me to message with Twitter more, so it could change my habits. Either way I'm excited. Nitpick: is a Facebook-owned property (possibly trademarked?). And the name of the product is Direct Messenger. This should be called "Direct Messenger for Web - The best unofficial Twitter DM client, now for Web" or something like that.

@thetylerhayes - My experience with is similar to yours except I find myself starting conversations on and then carrying them on in a dedicated tab I have open for messenger. Same with DM for the Web - I start conversations from my timeline but carry them on at - and I definitely like using stickers. As for Twitter’s DM on the web - I can’t stand the UX - they’ve made a few minimal changes in the past months however it’s still not a great experience in my opinion. Maybe if all you want to do is send a quick message to someone it’s fine - but for longer form content an immersive experience trumps the current offering any day. Although maybe people only use direct messages for short conversations anyways…
