Twitter Video Feature To Be Unveiled In Coming Weeks
Twitter has been growing in popularity since the day it was first brought to light, and with the increasing number of users, the team behind the popular platform realized that they need a new video feature that will allow users to shoot, edit and post straight from their Twitter account. The rumors are that this new integrated video app will be revealed to public in the coming weeks.
This will be the first of its kind video app that will be integrated with Twitter. As for now, the users can only share the Vine which is also a Twitter’s app that allows for a six second video. This amount of time sometimes is not enough for the users, so they are excitedly awaiting the arrival of full-fledge video integration on the website.
The upcoming video app for Twitter will have some similar features to the hugely popular platform “Vine” but there will be some differences as well. Some of the sources have reported that Twitter is experimenting with the 20-second time-limit on user created video, but nothing concrete about that has been revealed thus far.
The need for an integrated video app arose, when some of the famous social networking websites such as Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram added their own video functions, which have been used by almost every single user. The integration of this feature will certainly attract a lot of users to the popular social networking website.
We constantly see pictures posted on Twitter, but whenever there’s a need for video, we usually find links to different websites which, of course, is due to the lack of video options available on the platform. The niche is definitely there, but the developers will have to work at a faster pace, so that the native video function can be added to Twitter.
However, this is not the first time Twitter has been too slow when it comes to innovation. It has been criticized on numerous occasions before due to the slow transition processes and for staying the same, even when every other social networking sites are integrating a ton of different features that are making the usage a whole lot easier.
No fixed release date has been provided for the this video feature just yet, but it is expected to come out in the first half of this year, which could mean that it is just around the corner or we will not be seeing it for a few more months. There are a lot of expectations riding on this feature. Hopefully, the users will not be disappointed.
