Great news for tt.fm devotees. Now when you are in a turntable.fm room, you can gossip sotto voce with your closest buddies about the other folks around. Private messaging is up and running, the service announced in this morning’s blog post.
Got something to say that you don’t want to share with the whole room? You can now chat privately with your Facebook and Twitter friends, as well as people you’ve fanned. It even works if you and the person you’re chatting with are in different rooms! Just click on the private message icon in the lower left hand corner of your browser window to see who’s around, find a friend you want to chat with, and you’re off!
You can also set yourself up as unavailable for private chat, if you are so inclined. “It’s that easy! Get chatting!” the announcement concludes.
