Currently, the only possible way to communicate privately on twitter is via the Direct Message (DM) feature, which unfortunately is limited to 140 characters per tweet thus preventing users from having easy and effective conversations. With TwitChat for Twitter, iPhone users can now easily Chat privately and instantly with their twitter followers and friends, just as they do in any IM client like gtalk or Yahoo Messenger!
TwitChat is a 3rd party instant messaging app, Free for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It’s a fun and easy way to interact with your Twitter followers privately, or have group conversations with your friends! To start a conversation, simply login with your Twitter account to instantly view all your Twitter friends and connect privately.

The chat feature is certainly a prominent one that Twitter should integrate to their web interface and mobile app, so users can have spontaneous conversations. The TwitChat team is working hard to add new features and support for other platforms.
