Twitter working on standalone messaging app?


We had heard that Twitter will be rolling out a service which would allow users to direct message one another on Twitter without having to follow each other.

Now we hear of a new service they ’might’ be working on a Standalone Messaging app. According to All Things D citing the ever-so-popular “people familiar with the matter”, Twitter was particularly interested in Snapchat’s rise to prominence, going so far as to conduct surveys to gauge interest in that particular messaging service.

Currently, users have far many choices, with the likes of Line, WhatsApp and of course Snapchat, among others. Couple that with the probability that Google Hangouts will support SMS, we wonder why Twitter is really bothering about a messaging app.
