Twitter is rolling out a flurry of new services. The latest features to be added to the social media site are video and group messages.
The group messages can include up to 20 people, and the videos can be shot and edited. Twitter announced the new features in a blog post:
“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. 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 gives you more options for how and with whom you communicate on Twitter.”
The post also detailed the new video feature:
"Our unique mobile video camera and inline editing experience lets you capture and share videos up to 30 seconds in an instant. Twitter for iPhone users will be able to upload videos from the camera roll as well (a feature that will be available on our Android app soon)."
Twitter has been hinting at several new features, and more are expected to come this year.
