Thought you'd escaped Twitter? Think again as Twits get email button

Tweemail spamalanche set to beam up into Luddite inboxes

Recommendations for simplifying OS migration

Just to make sure that anyone who's not on Twitter knows about Twitter, understands the coolness of Twitter and sees that everyone they know is on it and that they should be on it too, Twitter has introduced sharing by email.

If one of the Twitterati sees a tweet they want to share with their Luddite unstreet friends, they can now send it off direct from Twitter in a tweemail that will no doubt ask the recepient if they are on Twitter and if not, why not.

Suggested folks who may not be on Twitter include "your parents", Twitter engineer Stefan Filip said on the blog.

"If you’re like me, you probably come across tweets every day that you’d like to share," he wrote.

"Of course, you can retweet any of these to your Twitter followers, but sometimes you want to share with another group, like your college roommates or your parents or a friend who isn’t yet on Twitter."

The ability to suck those who have so far avoided Twitter into at least seeing tweets will be rolled out over the next few weeks, under the "more" icon next to the reply, retweet and favourite buttons.

"You can add your own comment, and we’ll send an email with your comment and the Tweet together," Filip said. ®
