create a script file yourself

so on your PC
   script /tmp/logfile

and on the other pc
   tail -f /tmp/logfile

It's a bit simple but it works.

The question is not clear. What do you mean with "share the session of the my 'screen' session with the other user" ?

are you talking about the screen command?

You can share your desktop with VNC. (If that was the question)

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You can share a screen session but to be able to set it up there are some changes needed that could create a security risk.
