Twitter's new features: Now you see them...

Earlier today, Twitter added a new feature: the ability to send Tweets via direct message.
Pardon me if I don't jump up and applaud this development. Because I was a huge fan of another one of Twitter's much-lauded new features - embedding tweets within tweets - and that lasted maybe a few months before being quietly killed off with no announcement whatsoever. Embedding a tweet in a tweet let you reference the tweet without having to quote it and use up most of your valuable 140 characters. It was a great feature and Twitter just killed it.
RIDICULOUS UPDATE ALERT: So I actually shared a tweet in a DM today, and, hey, guess what!? It's a tweet embedded in a tweet! So Twitter just moved that feature into DMs only. So weird.
