Share a console in linux with multiple users using screen

Sometimes you need to see or share some actions that you or somebody is doing in a remote server terminal (lx, mac..).
You can share your screen (join.me is a good solution) but the real way of doing it is to share you terminal / console.

The best way of doing this is using screen  multiuser option.
The procedure es staightforward:

1. open a screen session (-S give a session name):
screen -S screen-multi
2. activate multiuser mode
 :multiuser on
3. the other user (connected to the same server) has to:
screen -x screen-multi
And thats it, both will see the same session and can write at the same time on it.
