There's no way to do it from the web UI yet but it's possible to send DMs from the API, it's like a normal toot except visible only to author and people mentioned in it

@Gargron so if I were to implement this elevated privacy option, it would really behave as an exclusive toot and show in the home timeline to anyone mentioned + author, not as a toot that I would have to fetch elsewhere? Just making sure so I know how I'm going to introduce this...

This is really cool, I missed it in the API as an option, I'm definitely gonna take advantage of it now though :3

@eurasierboy it just a normal toot and it will appear in notifications or home feed appropriately, only difference is visibility: direct

@Shane @Gargron I'll be sure to add a similar disclaimer. Thanks :3
