Twitter update to introduce direct group messaging and mobile video camera upload

twitterTwitter today announced two new features coming to its service. Direct Group Messaging and Mobile Video Camera upload support. The update will be rolling out for official apps on both iOS and Android.

So Twitter is now joining the likes of WhatsApp, Link and Skype to provide a group conversation by supporting personal direct messaging with multiple contacts.

The good news is that you don’t have to be following or be followed to create a group. Invite notifications are received by those coming into the group and, once connected you’re good to go.

Capture, edit and share videos right from your Twitter app

Tweets have been more than 140 characters for some time. The Twitter you experience today is rich and immersive, full of images, gifs, Vines, audio files and videos from some of the world’s most recognizable figures and brands. And starting today, everyone will soon be able to seamlessly capture, edit and share videos right from the Twitter app, too.

So watch out for the Twitter update for the Android app rolling out soon.
