Twitter is now rolling out pinned DMs, the company announced on Thursday. The feature was previously only available to Twitter Blue followers, but is now available to everyone on Android, iOS, and the web.
The feature doesn’t seem to be fully rolled out yet. I have access to it on the iOS app, but not on the Twitter web app. On the iOS app, you can swipe to the side of a conversation to reveal a pin, and if you tap it, the conversation will be moved to a new “Pinned Conversations” section at the top of your DM inbox.
Keep your favorite DM conversations easily accessible by pinning them! You can now pin up to six conversations that will stay at the top of your DM inbox.

Pins could be a useful way to keep a handful of conversations easily accessible, although I can see how some people might be disappointed knowing that you can only keep six at the top of the list.
Now that pins are rolling out more widely, there are currently two features under Twitter Blue’s exclusive Labs label: longer video uploads and NFT profile pictures. If you want to try them now, you’ll need to subscribe to Twitter Blue, which costs $2.99 per month in the US (and varies depending on where you are).
