Twitter has announced two key new features to the platform will start to be rolled out: group direct messaging and mobile video capture.
Private conversations on Twitter are a great complement to the largely public experience on the platform. You might prefer to read (or watch) Tweets but converse about them privately. You might want to continue a public conversation privately with a smaller group, or start one based on a Tweet you saw.
The group function lets you start conversations with any of your followers and they don’t all need to follow one another in order to chat. You can create a group in just a few taps. When you’re added to a group, you’ll get a notification.
The Twitter you experience today is immersive, full of images, gifs, Vines, audio files and videos from some of the world’s most recognisable figures and brands. And starting today, everyone will soon be able to seamlessly capture, edit and share videos right from the Twitter app too.
In just a few taps you can now add a video to unfolding conversations, share your perspective of a live event, and show your everyday moments instantly, without ever having to leave the app.
The first Aussie to use the new feature is also the most followed Australian on the platform – @CodySimpson – head to his account to check out the first video.
