Twitter allows users to capture and share videos in direct messages

Twitter_office_logo-1200-80

Twitter is adding a new feature for users of its mobile app today, which allows users to capture and share videos using direct messages. While users could previously capture and share images via direct message (which were not publicly viewable), being able to share videos wasn’t a thing … until now.

In a clear move at rival social sharing apps like Snapchat, which has allowed sharing of images and photos with users for some time (in fact, as its core offering), Twitter seems to be wanting in on that action as well with this new feature.

The new feature is said to be rolling out to Android and iOS from today, and while we can’t see it immediately on the version of Twitter installed here, it should be available soon.

What videos will you share with your friends via direct messages? Please, let’s hear some creative answers, and not crude ones!

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
