Twitter Introduces Private Group Chat And Video Sharing From Mobile
Twitter has become a global phenomenon since coming into existence, and it is largely due to the presence of celebrities and some important personnel on the platform. Although, many people criticize Twitter for taking its success for granted and not changing at a faster pace, but the company still manages to bring in something fresh for the users. Now, you can add a few more features to the list of additions on Twitter, as the platform has received some highly demanded features.
Twitter is a public platform that is open for everyone, and you can see almost everything that has been posted by any user. Now, to bring some privacy into the mix, Twitter has introduced a new feature which will allow you to chat with a group without it going to public. The best part of this feature is that not all of the people involved will have to be followed by one another.
The social networking site describes the new group chat addition to the platform as:
You might want to continue a public conversation privately with a smaller group, or start one based on a Tweet you saw. Many of you use Direct Messages to reach the people and brands you’re only connected to on Twitter. Whatever the case may be, the ability to converse privately with groups give you more options for how and with whom you communicate on Twitter.
That’s not all, as Twitter app for mobile phones has been enhanced and it will now allow you to capture, edit and share your videos without much of a hassle. This will enable Twitter camera on your mobile, which you can use to record a video which has to be less than 30 seconds; edit it as much as you want and then share it with public via your account.
The feature will come in handy for almost everyone because most of the people nowadays prefer to use Internet on their mobile phones. It will also be helpful for the people that travel a lot and want to share their experiences with everyone on the go.
iPhone’s Twitter app users will be able to upload videos from the camera roll as well. It has been noted that this feature will make its way to Android users very soon.
As of now, you can use the group chat feature, while the mobile video will be made available to public very soon. To see how the mobile video will work, check out this inaugural tweet from the Oscar host, Neil Patrick Harris.
