It’s coming: sending tweets by email
November 26, 2012 | 12:00 AM

Soon you will be able to share your Twitter posts easily, even with people who aren't on Twitter.

 Twitter, the social microblogging service, is introducing a new sharing feature that will let people pass along posts by email directly from its site.

Here's how it will work: When you see a post you want to send to a friend, place the cursor over it.

A list of links will appear below it in blue, just as it does now, but there will be an additional link, titled "More." Click on it and you will see a button that says "Share this Tweet via email."

All you have to do is fill out the address, hit send, and off it goes. The feature is being introduced now — some people may find that they already have it. The rest will get it "over the coming weeks," according to a Twitter representative.

There are some advantages to emailing. For one, you can now more quickly ridicule someone's post before an audience of select friends without going public.

It also means you can expose people who have avoided Twitter to its siren call. Don't count on them thanking you.
