Twitter Send Private Message Link/Button

Discovered that this was a feature today and I think it is really useful especially for business accounts. It was launched in early 2016. You can create a deep link that goes to DM for your account as described below and as stated in this article

https://twitter.com/messages/compose?recipient_id={your account’s numeric user ID}

Your user ID is found under Settings / Your Twitter data. If you want the button to show up (in supported clients like Twitter web and Twitter app) then you need to enable Receive Direct Messages from anyone under Settings / Privacy and safety. Remember that the link can work anywhere, for example on your website. See how it looks in the twitter app below.
