Ask the Answer Guy: Send Private Messages With Tweets

Brent, I like sending Tweets but sometimes I have specific things to say to only a portion of my followers. I don't want to open another account, is there an easier way to do this?
I know a lot of people who use twitter and they have a similar problem. Although they broadcast their tweets to everyone, they only want a certain subset to receive some of their messages (e.g. clients or personal contacts). I have found this great tool, called Bccthis, which gives just the functionality you want. It has an intuitive interface that makes sending private messages simple.

Simply log into the Bccthis website and you'll find two boxes. One is for the tweet that you want to send. The other is for the private message you want to send. Then choose the recipients from your regular followers that you want to receive your extra message. After that, you and the people that you selected to receive your message can continue the conversation in a private thread. Try it here.
